He’s been a familiar roadside fixture to motorists traveling along Route 35 in Middletown since 1956. The brightly colored clown known as “Calico” has such a beguiling grin that drivers still scratch their heads in wonderment at the sight of him. The 30-foot-tall steel sign was originally built to advertise Joseph Azzolina’s Food Circus store. Now Calico’s a 5.5 x 3.5-inch die-cut vinyl sticker you can slap anyplace you'd like! Just $3 (postage included). Graphic design by Mark Moran / ©Weird NJ.
