Dodg’em Go Where You Like…If You Can

Leon Keer

Long Beach Pike was an amusement park in early 1900 and after some decades of fun, the Pike was officially closed and demolished in 1979 having lots of history disappear. Leon Keer has stated that, “I wanted to revive some of that history by painting a 3D mural of a garage with an old bumper car from the early days. Dodg’em was the famous bumper car ride in the Pike. I was overwhelmed by all the memories from many spectators.”
