Green Giant Statue

The Green Giant Statue was really fun to see. They even have a statue of "Sprout." There's also a Green Giant Museum inside the building, for $2 each, that is fun to go through.

Jolly Green Giant, 2019.

Jolly Green Giant

The Jolly Green Giant statue was a real treat. The little park around it was very clean and neat with picnic tables. It was a great place for our family to stop and take a break from our road trip!

Jolly Green Giant

There is a new chamber of commerce and Green Giant museum under construction. Park entrance closed due to that, but we parked at Dairy Queen. We got some local history from a woman in the current museum/gift shop, as well as our Jolly Green souvenirs! There are picnic tables...but if raining the fairgrounds/campground right next door have nice picnic shelters. There's now a Sprout statue, and a photo cutout board. A three-fer!
