Pelican Path celebrates Seabrook’s feathered mascot

Posted: Sunday, September 29, 2013 12:00 am

In the coastal community of Seabrook, giant pelicans have been generating attention since 2001. Not actual water birds — although they often are cruising the skies — but colorful fiberglass statues, exhibited throughout town as 6-foot-tall reminders that this is a bayside community that takes pride in its mascot, the white pelican.

Each pelican is painted by a different artist and represents a theme. There’s a sailor pelican, a sheriff pelican and an angler. Visitors to the city often pose with the pelicans for souvenirs. Throughout the city, 36 such pelicans are exhibited, some in plain view along NASA Road 1, others more hidden within the small neighborhoods of the old town.
