Standing on the corner in Winslow, Arizona has been a lot more fun since the Standin’ on the Corner Park came to town – and it’s a great photo op. Yes, this park is in honor of the Jackson Browne and Glenn Frey song Take it Easy made famous by the Eagles.
A bronze statue of a hip 70’s guy, with a guitar propped on the toe of his boot, poses next to the “Standin’ on the Corner” sign. He appears to be gazing at the bright red flatbed Ford parked near the corner. The truck’s “reflection” is painted into the Take it Easy themed, two-story mural. You’ll find the park on the Northwest corner of Kinsley Avenue and Second Street (Route 66). Winslow is about 68 miles east of Flagstaff.
Across from “the corner” is a Standing on the Corner/Route 66 themed gift shop. So be sure to pick upÂ tee or shot glass.
September 26-28, 2008 will be the 10th annual “Standin’ on the Corner” Festival. The event has food, entertainment, and it is family friendly!
Come on, sing along. I know you want to…
