2010 Superman Celebration - Lois Lane/Noel Neill Statue Unveiled In Metropolis - June 11, 2010

The 2010 Superman Celebration is underway in Metropolis, IL. Today was the ceremony unveiling the new Lois Lane/Noel Neill statue. Thankfully, the storms that hit this morning were done just in time for the ceremony. So, we had a rain free ceremony. A big crowd turned out to see the debut of the statue. Noel Neill was in attendance riding up in a classic car. She was accompanied by the official Superman of the 2010 Superman Celebration. The ceremony was really well done with several speaking about Noel along with the work that went into getting this project done. Noel did speak and was her normal sweet self. She is always so appreciative of everything and thanked everyone for coming out for the event.
Also in attendance was the artist of the statue, Gary Ernest Smith along with Kevin Magg who heads the company that built the statue. The statue is very impressive looking and it was a great ceremony. Amazing work on it!!
