Fun Thanksgiving Fact: Meet the world’s largest Turkey!

Meet the world’s largest Turkey…

There is no one definitive story about why turkey is associated with Thanksgiving, but many stories cite the turkey’s popularity because it’s been both plentiful and inexpensive over the years.

How many of you will be serving turkey at Thanksgiving Dinner?

Well, get ready to introduce your kids/grandkids to the World’s Largest Turkey!

Big Tom, as he’s known, “lives” in Frazee, Minnesota.  He stands over 20 feet tall and is bronze in color. Including his tail, Big Tom is 17 feet wide.  He has 1,000+ pounds of steel reinforcing his body and he weighs over 5,000 pounds.  Big Tom’s legs were designed a bit shorter and stouter than a normal turkey to better handle his great weight.  There are an estimated 3,000 – 4,000 fiberglass feathers on Big Tom, which took DWO Fiberglass Company over 2000 hours to complete.

Now that’s a BIG TOM!
