Potato Days is perfect for kids too!

The Potato Scramble was originally started to help kids better understand how potatoes grow and are harvested.

The event is held in a potato field and follows the regular Potato Picking Contest. Ages 4 – 16 are given the opportunity to hunt for potatoes. In addition to taking home the potatoes they pick, there are specially marked potatoes that earn the pint size pickers a shiny 50-cent piece.

No pre-registration is required. The Potato Scramble is held on Saturday morning, about 10:45. There are directional signs along Highway 9, near McGrath Park, to help participants find the field. A total of $200 is given in prizes.
