On my way up to Okoboji I went through Sac County. Sac County was neat to drive through because many of the barns have barn quilts on them. A barn quilt is a large colorful wooden block, typically eight feet square. They are all different and its fun seeing them scattered throughout the countryside. The county seat is, of course, Sac City, and home of the World’s Largest Ball of Popcorn. Built in 2009, the popcorn ball is 5,000 pounds and stands more than 8 feet tall. It’s located on Highway 20 across from the Casey’s General Store. I was amazed at its size and am glad that I earned the bragging rights to say that I have seen the world’s largest popcorn ball.
