Remember that massive statue of Paul Bunyan from the movie "Fargo"? Well, it was moved to here.

Fun for younger kids. Think of it as a local carnival that never moves. Best part of the adventure was seeing your kids faces when Babe started to talk them. Not just a quick 'Hi' but remembered them and their names when they walked by the status a second time.
