Peoria mascot Prickly Pete has launched an Instagram page.

Standing at almost six feet tall, Prickly Pete is a blue cactus that loves to take selfies and pictures with Peoria residents.

Prickly Pete moved to Peoria in the spring of 2019 and was hired by the city as the mascot where he quickly became a fan favorite.

Pete has traveled throughout Peoria and around the Valley, and is now ready to share his adventures on his very own page.

Find Pete’s adventures at @peoriapricklypete on Instagram where he will visit his favorite restaurants, shops and outdoor spots.

In addition, Pete began dating Prickly Pam, a slightly taller and much prettier blue cactus, on Feb. 14, 2020. Watch their story unfold as they negotiate dating in the new COVID-19 world.
