Bobo the Elephant Gets Giant Purple Tutu


A giant Wheeling landmark will be donning a giant tutu for the next week or so.

The sculpture called Bobo the Elephant is wearing the tutu to get you ready for this year’s Dancing With the Ohio Valley Stars.

Katie McKinley, who is a contestant this year, helped to craft the giant tutu.

Augusta Levy Learning Center hoping as you drive by, you’ll remember the event is just around the corner!

“I think it’s just a visual reminder for people in town and the community to see, every time they see Bobo in a tutu they are reminded that all of our contestants and stars are out there getting ready for the big night,” Kathy Shapell of Augusta Levy Learning Center said. “It benefits our kids at the center, but it’s a super fun night.”

If you want to grab a picture or a peak at Bobo, he’s actually just down the street from where the event is being held at the Capitol Theatre.
