in popularity every year, the Potato Sack Fashion Show will
once again take center stage Saturday at 11:00 am. The tradition
of the wearing of potato sacks dates back to the 30's when the
common Potato Days attire was vests made out of potato
sacks. In fact, at that time, business owners caught without their
vests would be fined!
Today, potato sack fashions have been expanded
to include everything from tuxedos to bathing suits, wedding gowns
to bib overalls. This year's theme is 'POTATO DAYS ROCK STARS.'
All garments must be made using potato sacks. The category for
fashion designs are:
'Potato Days Rock Stars!'
Entries must use potatoes or potato
sacks, but do not have to be sewn. Potato sacks can be purchased
in Barnesville at Barnesville Amoco and Barnesville Grocery.
