Dothan UPS Gets New Peanut

This morning the Wiregrass got a little nuttier.

The UPS in Dothan unveiled Percy the parcel peanut.

He's the 46th Peanut to join the Wiregrass.

UPS approached the Downtown Group about adding a peanut to their business.

John Ryals was chosen to design it.

Ryals has done other peanuts in the area.

He says he enjoys adding the characters to Dothan.
"It is an honor to do it I mean there is so many around Dothan for people to see it is just unreal that everywhere you do in Dothan you see them and that there is so many different kinds for so many different companies and it is just an honor," said John Ryals, designer the peanut.

The Peanuts around town celebrate Dothan's history as the peanut capital of the world.
