Vegreville

Our travels on the open road took us to the small city of Vegreville where you will find lots of Ukrainian folks and the worlds largest Ukrainian egg.
That’s my boy, in yellow standing  under the giant revolving egg.
 Now we can say we’ve been there.

Found a bit of info on it on the internet.
