Pass The Peanuts, Please #2

Downtown Charlie Brown

In my hometown, Santa Rosa, there are many statues of the Peanuts characters. These are here, like I mentioned in my post last week, because Santa Rosa is the official hometown of Charles Schulz.

Charlie Brown was the first of the statues to be displayed in Santa Rosa. It was a event called, “It’s Your Hometown Charlie Brown.”

On the statue is a depiction of Downtown Santa Rosa. There are just generic names, but each one represents a real store there. For instance, in the front view, music is Stanroy's Music. In the back view, Deli is Max's Deli, which has been there for over 30 years.

If you look closely you'll see all the Peanuts characters lounging around the main street, both on front and back of Charlie.

The statue was in the center of Railroad Square, the first downtown of Santa Rosa. 

The little pink note held in Charlie Brown’s hand says, “Meet me downtown Charlie Brown. Signed, Little Red-Headed Girl”

I hope he found her.

Last week I asked my blog readers to tell me what they're favorite Peanuts character is. The overwhelming response was Snoopy!

Each character in the Peanuts comic strip has a defining characteristic. This week's poll is:
Name a character and its defining characteristic.
