Just when you think you've seen everything potato!
Debuting in 1999, Mashed Potato Wrestling is back for another fun-filled year on Friday evening beginning at 5:30 p.m. in the Assumption Church parking lot on North Front Street.
The contest, which is modeled on similar events in Fort Fairfield, Maine and Clark, South Dakota will match teams of two in a wrestling ring fashioned out of hay bales, tarps, and filled with mashed potatoes! (Actually, it is the floor sweepings from a plant, which are not edible, or outdated flakes that are no longer saleable. No food is being wasted, as the leftover potato mixture is fed to local cattle.)
Spectators: Don't forget the camera! This is one event you may want to capture on film to prove to people that there really is such a thing as Mashed Potato Wrestling!
