Giant potato makes unexpected stop in Hurricane

Last Tuesday afternoon, a giant potato stopped by Hurricane. The driver of the truck moving this potato said his GPS accidentally routed him there while he was looking for a truck stop in order to get some fuel. While outside the Dairy Queen in Hurricane, the potato became an instant tourist attraction with people taking pictures.

The potato is 28 feet long, 12 feet wide, weighs 6 tons and took one year to build. The potato and truck are owned by the Idaho Potato Commission based in Boise. It travels across the country to promote the Idaho potato. At the time, it was headed to Elizabeth City, N.C., for a potato festival.
