Share this post

Whiting... already home to the zany and world-renowned Pierogi Fest... may one day be hosting a Mascot Parade. Today's Times reports representatives from the online National Mascot Hall of Fame will visit the north Lake County city September 9th to discuss whether or not Whiting would be a good fit as a permanent brick-and-mortar home for the likes of names that include the Phillie Phanatic and San Diego Chicken. Mayor Joe Stahura has been already been wanting to build a local museum that would serve as a destination place and, among other things, house a history of Standard Oil, whose connection to the city goes back to the late 18-hundreds.
