It was installed along Coast Highway 101 next to San Elijo State Beach in 2007. One of the more famous costume stunts made it look as if a papier mache shark was eating

She turned her stroller into the jaws of a shark and "inside of it was this little baby with the head sticking out," Lebherz said.The best group prize went to several men from Camp Pendleton who showed up in formal, low cut strapless dresses they’d picked up at a thrift shop, he said.Lebherz
