Mr. PG

Mr PG Mr. PG was first constructed in 1960 as a symbol of the importance of the forest industry to Prince George. That year he took part in the Prince George May Day parade and could speak and bow. In 1961 he was entered in the Kelowna Regatta and the Vancouver PNE Parade and also traveled to Smithers. Two years later, he entered the 1963 Grey Cup parade.


Today Mr. PG stands happily at the junction of Highway 97 and Highway 16, but still welcomes all visitors to a Prince George that owes much to the forest industry.

Mr. PG is 8.138 meters high, his head is 1.5 metres in diameter.

The photograph of Mr. PG currently on this page is courtesy of Leona Nyberg, Prince George.
