The Worlds Tallest Gnome needs your help.


I grew up at my family’s “Fun Park”, a go-kart track and amusement park all slammed into one awesome package. It was owned my my grandfather Ron Hale and when it was time for him to retire, my father Bruce Hale took over. In 1998, shortly after my grandfather retired he built the gnome and our park gained a new mascot... Howard, the Worlds Tallest Gnome. Since then he has become a land mark, a Guinness World Record holder and my family’s legacy.

My grandfather build him in his garage, using scraps of garbage and junk we had laying around our property. He originally stood as the Park mascot, and when that era ended, he then became the station mascot. Our family sold the station many years ago but the Gnome still stood, unfortunately the owners let him go, allowed him to disintegrate and now they are tearing him down.

We want to find him a new home, somewhere people can still visit him, take photos with him and for Bruce and Ron Hale to live on through him. We don’t want to see him torn down and thrown out.

In order to find him the best possible home we would like to send him there in the best repair. The money will be used to purchase him a brand new trailer to replace the rotten base he is currently on, completely repaint him, as well as repair his plaster hands and foam face. Any remaining money will be donated to the Parksville SOS to support those most vulnerable.
