What began as a ‘sign war’ between Zephyrhills Cinema 10 and Golden Corral, in mid-May, has evolved into a battle of wits among 70-plus Zephyrhills businesses.
It seems like just about everybody is getting into the act.
The First Congregational Church of Zephyrhills took on Taco Bell.
The church’s sign declares: “Taco Bell sounds good, but ours has a real ring to it.”
Golden Corral took on Zephyrhills Police, while K & K Glass poked fun at Pin Chasers.
Lavish Lox teased The Gentleman’s Quarter, while others such as Axe of Kindness, Zephyrhills Brewing Company and Salon on 5th used clever gibes and poetry to convey their messages.
Even The Greater Zephyrhills Chamber of Commerce joined in, taking a universal approach to cheer on the community’s businesses — something it’s grown accustomed to, through the years.
Some of the signs are quite tall. Others, very small.
And, some, like the ones — at Sen. Danny Burgess’ office — aren’t even signs at all.
At the lawmaker’s office, four pieces of paper are taped to the window, conveying this message:
“We don’t have a sign, but we wanted to play!
“So we want to take the opportunity to say …
“As we have been looking at all of the signs, while we drive around
“It makes us proud to represent
And live in this great little town.”
