Weekend Watch: Potato Days
For all the individual town celebrations in this area, no other has the iconic identity of Potato Days in Barnesville, Minn. Where else will you find mashed potato wrestling, a Miss Tater Tot, a french fry feed and the national lefse cook-off? And that’s just Friday. Saturday starts with a potato pancake breakfast and follows with a potato sack fashion show, a potato peeling contest and of course a mashed potato eating contest. Events are scheduled throughout the days, but you won’t find a dud at this spud fest. www.potatodays.com.
