Photo of the Adam West statue maquette unveiled at Wednesday's Adam West Day celebration in Walla Walla, Washington. Thanks to @rubenprocopio for the photo! Plans for the statue will be submitted to the city and art commission for approval.
The 2nd Annual Adam West Day featured a host of events honoring our favorite superhero. A party on the lawn of his childhood home, a special memorabilia exhibit at a local museum, a 1966 Batmobile replica, and screening of the 1966 Batman movie were just some of the exciting events. The original Batcopter was on hand and Johnny Green, who played one of the Joker's henchmen in the Surf's up episode, told stories from his time on the set. The day ended with the lighting of the Bat Symbol in Adam's honor! Sounds like a Bat-tastic day!
Adam West was born September 19, 1928 in Walla, Washington. He attended Walla Walla High School and Whitman College, before being drafted into the U.S. Army, where he served as an announcer on American Forces Network television.
