I’m Back for 2012! (and a Contest)

Folks in Muscatine have all seen ‘TACO’ Tom Hendricks do some crazy antics.  Remember his gulf cart parade floats?   Or how he gave away 500 tacos at the Y Athletic Center’s Family Festival last year!!!

Well, this weekend, ‘TACO’  Tom decided to do something else fun for Muscatine: The first Kraken appearance of 2012!

I’m spending Cinco de Mayo weekend at Taco John’s in Muscatine, Iowa.

May 3,4,5   (Thursday – Saturday)
Taco John’s Restaurant
506 Grandview Ave
Muscatine, Iowa

10am-10pm  (times are approximate and weather permitting)

Thunderstorms this weekend might make me duck in and out of hiding for short times – but I promise to be visible as much as possible.  Light rain I don’t mind – but high winds don’t agree with me!

Stop by and say hello!

To celebrate my first appearance of 2012, I’m doing a giveaway! Want to win a River Monster T-shirt?

I’m at the HON Company Picnic!

The HON Company is one of the most important reasons that I exist! I’m here to celebrate the innovative, creative, and ambitious people and organizations of Muscatine.   You can read my story here.  (You’ll spot the HON references I’m sure!)

I’m spending the day in Weed Park.   I’m in the band stand, right by the charcoal grills…it smells delicious…but I’m also going to smell like smoke for weeks!

Thank you, to every one of the hard working, innovative, and fun people at HON company
– Thank you for making Muscatine a better place to live!

If you’re able to, would you help me document my appearance at the HON picnic?  The easiest way is to post a photo to my facebook page – thanks!

Surprise Visit! Thursday, July 21 on Mulberry Avenue

Kraken tentacles on 1222 Mulberry Ave Muscatine Iowa

One day only!
(Thursday, July 21)

I would love to keep the location a mystery and make you hunt for me, but I’m going to just tell you the location….and then hold a contest for a cool prize!

Ok, ready?  Here’s where I am:

I’m making a surprise appearance at 1222 Mulberry Avenue. It’s the large yellow house right beside the Muscatine Art Center and Musser Museum.

I can’t wait to see the reaction from all the walkers and joggers who have no reason to suspect they’ll be confronted by a giant pink tentacled octopus:-)

Now for the contest
The other big news for today is that my River Monster T-shirts are here…and I’m giving one away!

Want to win a River Monster T-shirt?
I’ll give a free T-shirt to the first person to post a photo of me at 1222 Mulberry Avenue.   That’s it!

Just post it to my Facebook page.

You can also email it to me at MuscatineRiverMonster@gmail.com

(And I’m always happy to see the photos you post on there – contest or no contest.  I guess everyone loves seeing pictures of them-self, even giant monsters)

Ok,  Good luck and happy photo snapping!

Drive by on Mulberry and wave hello!


P.S. Have you seen my River Monster T-shirts?
