My wife and I are on a mission to visit all the oversized local landmarks throughout Minnesota. This blog chronicles those visits and covers other related topics.

The Pelicans of Pelican Rapids

If you've been to Pelican Rapids, MN lately, you surely would have seen many plastic pelicans about 4 feet tall scattered around the town. It's some sort of community art project, much like The Oxtrot in the Brainerd Lakes area or the dinosaurs in the Twin Cities.

We went to Pelican Rapids yesterday to photograph all of these pelicans. You can see all of them here. These aren't really Big Stuff, but they are certainly kitschy. Pelican Rapids is, of course, the home of the World's Largest Pelican.
