Maine's Uncommon Potato Festival

The city of Fort Fairfield, Maine's Potato Blossom Festival 2008 is in full swing and the busy inhabitants of such a lovely 'burg have already been partying hardy, starting the Potato Blossom blowout last Friday.

Yesterday marked the beard growing competition. It started at 4:30pm and there was a $5 entry fee. The beards were only given up to a half hour to grow as the judging was performed at 5:00pm, so this one was probably decided by a hair.

Later this week, on Thursday, the action heats up with hay-bale tossing, ladies skillet-throw, and a barrel rolling contest!

By far the pièce de résistance is the mashed potato wrestling event, to be held this coming Saturday. The mashed potato wrestling event has been on hiatus and is making a glorious return to this year's festival.
