St-Jean-Baptiste Day in Lewiston-Auburn was a very public display of ethnic pride for nearly a century.
Named for the two largest things in Maine at the turn of the 20th century, Mt. Katahdin and Granger of Stetson, were known as the Largest Oxen in the World. Unable to do farm work because of their size, they visited fairs and agricultural events around the Northeast.
