Long Description:
The 55 foot tall Jolly Green Giant was built to bring tourists to the town of Blue Earth and it worked. Adjacent to the statue is a small barn which is a visitor center. Also near by are cutouts of "Sprout" in a little garden.

To find the giant, take exit 119 off of I-90, on US Hwy 169 past CR-104, along Giant Drive to the right. It's near the Walmart, which is harder to miss than the giant.
