Blue Whale supporters want to light up giant mushrooms

Supporters of the Blue Whale of Catoosa, Okla., announced on the landmark’s Facebook page they want to decorate the grounds’ giant mushrooms with Christmas lights in a few weeks. And you can help.

The supporters, also called Fins of the Blue Whale, already decorate the whale and the nearby Ark each year for the holidays. But the mushrooms area, which was cleared of brush two years ago, may be added to the annual festivities if enough volunteers or donations come through.

Here’s what the whale and Ark look like when decorated for Christmas:

If you want to give to the cause, go here. Or, if you live in northeastern Oklahoma, you can contact the group and say you’ll volunteer your time to string the lights when the work day is scheduled.
