See Sparky the sea lion

It is Friday and Fridays are for fun. As a St. Paul native, my memories of Sparky the sea lion go way back. I remember visiting Como Park as a small child with my parents and grandparents and watching the Sparky show. The Sparky I saw likely went to that great ocean in the sky long ago but there have been many Sparkys since.

In honor of Sparky, there are statues painted by various artists scattered here and there throughout St. Paul. I have found a few of them downtown. They are colorful and fun to photograph. The three I have pictured are in front of the Children’s museum the Minnesota Science museum and in Landmark Plaza.
