World's Largest Paper Clip.

World's Largest Paper Clip

A large red paper clip stands in town, erected in July 2007. Why here? Montreal blogger Kyle MacDonald traded up a single red paper clip in 2005 until he had a house -- in 14 trades. The town of Kipling traded away a house to generate publicity. It remains to be seen if MacDonald will remain in the house (after his book and movie deals), but the town has embraced the Red Paper Clip theme.

The Red Paper Clip Festival is held annually.
