Mr. PG

Attractions

If you ever drive the curve along the Yellowhead Highway, expect to see a beatific looking wood-made statue with the initials PG scrawled across its torso. Built in 1960 as a tribute to the thriving forestry industry in Prince George, this 8.13 meters (26.67 feet) statue is a reminder of the city's economic triumph. Back in 1961, soon after it was built, Mr. PG was known to have been part of the Kelowna Regatta and the Vancouver PNE Parade, before becoming a permanent fixture at the junction of Highways 97 and 16.
