The Turkey in Cicero, aka "Bronco Tom Turkey", rides a rearing horse. The statue was created by Sharon BuMann for the "Horses On Parade" public art project in 2002. The statue was then known as "All American Tom" because of the flag and red, white and blue color scheme. The statue was installed in front of the former Plainville Farms restaurant in Cicero. It was moved to the restaurant's Camillus, NY location for a few years before returning here. This restaurant closed around 2010 just before this photo was taken. By 2013, the statue was gone.

Frazee, MN
The World's Largest Turkey is 22 feet tall. The original "Big Tom" was 16 feet tall and built in 1986. It was created by Shell Scott using metal, cement, fiberglass, cardboard and insulation. The statue required frequent repairs and the town decided to build another one. In 1998, while removing the original turkey with a cutting torch, it caught fire and was completely destroyed. This replacement statue was produced by DWO Fiberglass Co. and installed in 1998. It is made of fiberglass and is reinforced with steel. For more, see this website. [map]
