2. Pinto McBean

Pinto McBean – the World’s Largest and Most Armed Pinto Bean – Bow Island’s answer to the World’s Largest Catsup Bottle (in Illinois, for you long-haul road-trippers).

Pinto McBean celebrates the town’s role in Southern Alberta’s agriculture industry, which is a leader in beans and lentils. The fact that agriculture even exists here is a feat of human engineering thanks to an impressive canal system that delivers nearly a billion cubic metres of waters to farmers. Indeed, with the effort put forth to grow crops in this dry, sun-soaked land, the world’s largest pinto bean is an apt, wonderful mascot and a deserving point of pride.
