Curling is a Canadian sport (and a fun one at that) so what better way for the citizens of Arborg, Manitoba to celebrate the sport than by the commemorating the world's largest curling rock?
The world's largest curling rock was erected in 2005 and measures 4.2 meters across and 2.1 meters tall, eclipsing the similar roadside attraction in Thunder Bay. The rock is a tribute to the two local high school teams who on won the provincial championships in 1948/49, 1949/50 and in 1988.
The town was settled in 1900 by Icelandic and Polish-Ukrainian pioneers. Arborg is 113 kilometers north of Winnipeg, located in the Interlake Region (between the mighty Lake Winnipeg and Lake Manitoba).
