Bikini Tree

Bikini Tree in Fairview Park is a Decatur, Illinois tradition. Do you remember it?

Slowly, as you drive through the park, in the distance, you begin to see it.

A real sense of joy would overtake you as you grew closer, and "discovered" it.

How long has this been going on?

Certainly, a good deal of time.

We all remember it from the 1950s and 1960s. It would be repainted so often it would be comedic. It is still happening!

Mac '65 guy Phil Hunt recently posted on his Facebook account his journey back to Decatur, and one image was of the Bikini Tree.

Phil mentions he will be posting whatever new version he finds, every time he returns to Decatur.

Thanks to Millie for the tip.
