"Largest troll I've ever seen! (out of 1!)" Fremont District Tip by barney1974

Fremont District, Seattle: 19 reviews and 31 photos

  Fremont Troll
by barney1974
 
 

Trolls have long been a part of Scandanavian culture but this is definitely the biggest troll that I have ever heard about. The Fremont Troll is located at the northern end of the Aurora Avenue Bridge. It rises out of the depths, crushing a VW bug in one hand and missing an eye. It is made out of 2 tons of concrete and rebar and took seven weeks to make. DUring the festivals, including Halloween, it usually gets decked out for the occasion. It is something to see.
