Charles Schulz was born in Minnesota and the state (specifically the city of St. Paul) has celebrated this by allowing Artist to create giant Peanut Characters that can be found around the city.  You can discover these characters on your own by visiting Peanut Facebook Page, St. Pauls public Art Page, or by visiting any of the locations on this map below.
