The Jolly Green Giant welcomes visitors in Blue Earth, Minnesota.
“Ho-Ho-Ho, Green Giant!”
For 85 years, this American mascot has been a Big Thing To See in the USA… on TV commercials, in print advertising, and on the packaging of some of your favorite tasty vegetables! In fact, if you watched television at all in the 20th century, you probably read the first sentence of this story in the sing-song voice of the Jolly Green Giant!
Minnesota may be nicknamed the “Land of 10,000 Lakes”, but this Big Thing To See is about as far away as you might get from spending time in this state’s famous Big Outdoors. In fact, what has been called “the Sprawl of America” disparagingly by some folks could easily be called the BIG INDOORS!
