  • Park in the lot at the civic center, or walk from the Hollywood Slots Casino. A unique giant of a Man, Paul Bunyan has a history with Bangor - and you can get up close for pictures.  more »
  • It's a big statue of Paul Bunyan. In front of the Cross Insurance Convention Center. Good photo op on a nice day.  more »
  • It will take you about a minute to see this statue .It's hard to pose for a photo of it if that's what you're after .Just another quirky Maine attraction!  more »

  • This enormous, creepy statue is surprisingly well hidden. We drove past it three times without even noticing it. Which seems crazy once we finally had it pointed out to us. The statue is hidden behind trees and the corner of a building. What is meant to be charming and campy is vaguely terrifying. If you're on the roof of the casino parking lot, you can get a good view of this weird giant man with too many teeth. There is no Babe the Blue Ox to accompany Paul. Find raising efforts have stalled, over the years, we were told by a local guide. So what you're left with is this big butch lumberjack which I assume the homosexual Bangor residents worship as a homoerotic icon. All Bangor gay pride parades should start or end here.
  • Iys amazing been here so long it's got grass under his feet looks like paul bunyon when I met him that one time
  • Everybody knows that Paul Bunyan was a real Maine myth and all of the other false claims are false. What isn't commonly known is that Babe the Blue Ox was really turquoise.
  • although it appears that multiple states claim to be home to Paul Bunyan, the statue was super cool
  • A perfect likeness!! Uncanny! And convenient to Circle K!
