The Town Mascot

The Town of Bow Island is well known for the dry edible bean industry. An 18 foot high statue of the mascot, "Pinto MacBean" is located adjacent to Highway No. 3 and greets everyone coming into town.

Designed by Jane Osborne and unveiled to the public in 1992, Pinto MacBean was created to promote tourism and signifies the importance of the dry edible bean industry to the area.

Information on Jon Pinto: Jon Pinto is an artist who lives in Orlando, Florida and has worked for Walt Disney as well as similar companies. You will notice Pinto MacBean is a cartoon character who has M & M Eyes and Veggie Tale Arms and Feet. Mr. Pinto has allowed us to use the new version of Pinto MacBean for our 100th Centennial Celebration.

The “Centennial Pinto MacBean” is very popular and we have received numerous comments of how cute he is.
