Olivia, Minnesota

When one thinks of Iowa, usually corn comes to mind.
So it was a bit of a surprise coming upon this in Minnesota.

Olivia has been calling itself the "Corn Capital of the World" since 1973.

At "50 feet", this is supposedly the World's Largest Ear of Corn.
Well, that's 50 feet including the gazebo so just how much creditability does claiming to be
 "The Corn Capitol" have?

In this post is the Jolly Green Giant who was a true 55 feet tall.
