Walkerton, Ontario: Art Fish

Some years ago, several cities became caught up in a civic art project. They picked out a symbol of their city, and sent artists out to represent that symbol in creative ways. Then the finished products were placed all over the city. New York had its bulls, Buffalo had its buffaloes.

And Walkerton, Ontario, had its fish.

Walkerton sits a bit south of the Bruce Peninsula, and it is on the Saugeen River. Therefore, fish were a good symbol.

Eleven are said to be scattered around town. We found three on the main drag, Durham St. Our favorite was one that hung on a fishing pole of sorts. It was a whopper!

Thanks to Roadside America for the tip, as usual.
