There will be over 20 potato-themed games for you to play. You'll win tickets and then can redeem locally donated prizes. Games you can play include limbo, balloon juggling, bottle flipping, corn hole, potato sack races, potato trick shot, and more. 

Enjoy music, the Scouts BSA Potato Derby, and you can't have a potato celebration without having Spuddy Buddy. The internationally famous mascot will also be hanging out at Kleiner Memorial Park. 


Did you miss the potato drop? 

Not a problem. The OG potato from the Idaho potato drop will be there for you to view up close, and if you have kiddos, the perfect place for them will be the bubble garden. At Potato Days in Meridian, they will have a bubble garden where children can dance, twirl, and blow bubbles.
