There will be no bored child while attending the Potato Days Festival in Barnesville Minnesota!  Activities abound for all ages but the younger generation will have plenty to keep them busy.

Kicking off the festival is the Kiddie Parade on Friday morning.  After that the two days are packed full of activity.  Kids’ Games in the park occupies most of the afternoon and when that wraps up there is entertainment on the main stage on Front Street and the Mashed Potato Wrestling contest draws wrestlers of all ages.  The Pony and Barrel rides are always popular with the younger generation.

Teens from all over flock to the Teen Dance held Friday night. 

Saturday offers the fun of searching for the Golden Potato, Potato Scramble, 10K/5K Run, Miss Tator Tot Pageant, and the Potato Car Races, and the Mashed Potato Eating and the Mashed Potato Sculpture contests.

Whether athletic or artistic, both days are filled with opportunities to win prizes or just have some great fun!
