Located on Highway 3 between Taber and Medicine Hat, Bow Island is known as the “Bean Capital of the West” so don’t be surprised when you see its huge, 18 foot high mascot "Pinto MacBean" waiting to greet you as you enter the town. Unveiled in 1992, the statue is a tribute to the importance of the dry edible bean industry in the area.
