Whimsey Wilbear can be seen as the city of Easthampton’s mascot. Old Town Hall is brandished across his belly while various city landmarks encircle his body including the Young World Child Care Center, which is housed in a nineteenth century church and Pulaski Park. Whimsey Wilbear is a colorful character and is painted in shades of blue, red, and white. Not to mention that the buildings come to life with a cartoonish charm tipping their hats to us.
