Jolly Green Giant
Over 55 feet tall, the Giant marks the mid-point of I-90 (America's longest highway) and "the valley" that his multi-national corporation calls home. Roadsideamerica.com Report... [10/28/2012]

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!

Fun stop. Has a small lot with parking. There is a platform to stand so people can take your picture under the giant.

Construction under the gaze of the JGG.

Jolly Green Giant

We passed through on a Saturday and the museum/gift shop was closed. On the way out we saw a sign announcing that there's a large building coming soon in front of the giant, next to Dairy Queen. Mention of the "Giant" Visitors Center almost appears to be an afterthought. My suggestion is that you visit before the quaint feel of this roadside attraction is gone forever.
