BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - June 28 is a day to celebrate Bangor’s biggest resident: the man who was rocking Buffalo Plaid long before it was fashionable.

It’s National Paul Bunyan Day!

Bangor, Maine is one of a few locations that claim the big man.

The folklore surrounding him is as much a mystery as where he actually called home.

One Paul Bunyan legend claims it took five storks to carry him as a newborn.

In the Queen City, it’s his statue that draws people from all over.

A family from Arkansas stopped by to snap some pics.

After their date with Paul, they were off in hopes of seeing a moose!
