Join us for a SPUDTACULAR event! The Big Idaho Potato Truck will be at the Urbandale Machine Shed Restaurant on Tuesday, October 26 from 1PM – 7PM with a 4 TON POTATO delivery!

There will be tractor rides from 3PM-6PM, games, giveaways, and a live radio segment from 4PM-6PM with Big John from KJJY! Plus spec-taters can have their pictures taken with the famous spud, so we encourage kids to wear their Halloween costumes! A Big Helping will donate to the Wildwood Hills Ranch for at risk children in our area.



The Big Idaho Potato Truck is on its 9th cross-country journey! It began in 2012 to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the Idaho Potato Commission. It travels the country promoting the certified heart-healthy Idaho potato and its mission to help small charities in towns and cities with its A Big Helping program.

Tater trivia from the Idaho Potato Commission:


  • This tater would take over 7,000 years to grow.
  • It weighs 4 tons, equaling 21,562 medium-sized Idaho® potatoes.
  • The potato is 802 times heavier than the largest potato ever grown, which weighed 11 pounds.
  • Plan on waiting 2 years for it to bake.
  • It would make 20,217 servings of mashed potatoes.
  • It would easily make over 1 million average-sized French fries.
