Musical instruments for the kids.

Jolly Green Giant

Stop and take some photos, and stretch your legs. There is an outdoor area of instruments for kids to play. There are a dozen little Sprouts you can find through the town if you are in Blue Earth longer.

Now my kids are really excited to see Jolly Green Giant products in the store.

Back of the Giant.

Jolly Green Giant

If you're a fan of the Jolly Green Giant, boy, are you in for a treat in Blue Earth. It's pretty hard to miss him when you drive into town along the main roads, and the lighting is good throughout most of the day for pictures. There's a stairway up to the top of his pedestal where visitors can stand for a better photo. A Sprout statue is nearby, along with some xylophone/pipe sculptures for guests to play to amuse themselves if they desire. A very small museum is also nearby, but it's not always open at the moment.

Jolly Green Giant Statue.

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.

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!
