College Grove Shopping Center, San Diego, CA

46' tall neon majorette from the former Campus Drive-In Theatre. The plaque next to the sign reads:

 

For all citizens at College Grove Center, we dedicate

 

The Neon Majorette

San Diego's Leading Lady

 

Reflecting the proud heritage of the San Diego Aztecs, the majorette was originally installed in 1948 at the Campus Drive-In. When the drive-in was demolished in the 1980s, the community and College Grove stepped in to save her and she stood at the center from 1989 to 1998. Her reinstallation celebrates the completion of one of San Diego's most significant community redevelopment efforts, the College Grove Center.

 

Dedicated March 2000.
