The spudtacular return of the Big Idaho Potato Truck!

Everyone is invited to welcome back the Tater Team and the famous over-sized 28-foot long, 10-foot wide Idaho potato to the World’s Largest Catsup Bottle.

“We've had great crowds every time they’ve visited,” said Judy DeMoisy, spokesperson for World’s Largest Catsup Bottle, Inc. “We're hoping for another impressive turnout!"

The Big Idaho Potato Truck was created in 2012 to commemorate the Idaho Potato Commission’s 75th anniversary. This is its 7th cross-country tour. The tour previously stopped in Collinsville in 2013, 2014, and 2016.

 

Fun Facts:

• A potato this size would take 10,000 years to grow.

• A potato this size would take 2 years to bake.

• A potato this size would make close to 1.5 million French fries.
