December 15, 1998 • New Replica of Boll Weevil Monument Unveiled During Christmas Parade

A new polymer resin composite replica of the monument was unveiled after being created by Mark Spence of Dothan. In a stroke of good luck, the replica was possible because the mold made by Ken English was still available. The unveiling ceremony was held in conjunction with the Christmas Parade of that year. As the cover over the new Boll Weevil Monument was lifted, red, white and blue balloons filled the sky and many cheered the return of the heart of Enterprise’s downtown.
