What weighs 8,000 pounds, is 55 feet tall and wears a size 78 shoe? The largest statue of the Jolly Green Giant, that's what.

Right off of I-90. If you are driving by, you MUST stop! Stretch your legs and pose for the great photo ops.

Both the museum and gift shop were closed today, so we had just a quick stop between showers. Use care, the steps to the platform at the base of the statue are slippery when wet.

It's just a big green statue. But it is a super short drive off the freeway and just a fun place to stop, stretch the legs and take some photos!

I remember the giant from commercials when I was a little girl in the 60's. So I definitely wanted to see it. I got there to late to go in the museum which closes at 3 Monday-Friday. It was still a sight to see.
