Largest Frying Pan
One of the more unique places you’ll ever go and one you’ll not soon forget! In the rural town of Brandon, Iowa lives Iowa’s largest frying pan. After declaring it the largest in the world they discovered that it is second to the one in Long Beach, Washington. This thing is 14 feet tall and would probably hold 44 dozen eggs. The town serves a big community Cowboy Breakfast cooked in iron skillets over open fires in September.
This lovely roadside attraction sits at the end of the main street in Brandon and is the perfect size for background photographs.
