Love spuds? Then you’ll want to head to Spring Valley this weekend for their annual celebration of potatoes.
“A-Peeling Potatoes” is the theme for the 41st Annual Potato Festival, according to the event’s Facebook page. The weekend will be a mash-up of potato related fun.
King and queen contests will kick off the festival Friday night in Bledsoe Park on Main Street followed by a potato putt-putt golf match and a mashed potato eating contest.
The 20th Annual Tater-Trot 5K run/walk race will take off Saturday morning at 9 a.m. Registration is $20 and will be held in Walton Park shelter house at Elm and Main streets.
More race information can be found at http://www.springvalleyoh.com/events/.
The two-day event will feature live music, children’s games, arts and crafts and a pet parade on Sunday. Food vendors will be on hand and shops will be open for one-of-a-kind purchases.
Proceeds from the event are used to benefit the community’s library, youth activities and parks.
