Town Giant Mushroom in Pennsylvania To Ring In New Year 2014

KennettSquare_PAThe Philadelphia Inquirer reported that a town giant mushroom will be the highlight of its 2014 New Year’s celebration. The Kennett Square town in Pennsylvania, known as the mushroom capital of the world, will have a mushroom sculpture built with dimensions 7 feet wide and 8 feet tall.

The 700-pound, stainless steel toadstool will be lowered from a crane Dec. 31 as residents of Kennett Square count down to the New Year.

About half of U.S. mushroom production comes from Kennett Square.
