“over 15 feet tall!”
Pelican Pete is a concrete statue over 15.5 feet (4.7 m) tall located in Pelican Rapids, Minnesota, United States. It has been referred to as "The Mother of All Pelicans" or "The Pelican Rapids Pelican". The sculpture is a 5:1 scale model of a mounted stuffed pelican which is located in the Old City Hall nearby. Minnesota is home to many giant roadside monuments. Two of the first such attractions were Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox, which were built in 1936 at Bemidji. They were an inspiration behind Pelican Pete, which was built by citizens of Pelican Rapids in 1957 for the town's Jubilee Celebration the following year. Pelican Pete is made of an iron frame, plastered and painted.
The address to this location on GPS takes you to the wrong side. First and South Broadway is close to where you wanna be to see this pelican. If you park in the streets on the bridge you will be able to find it when you look over into the water.
