Photo Gallery | Six ton potato heading to Garibaldi's
(WMC-TV) – If you’re munching on a slice of pizza at Garibaldi’s Thursday and see a giant potato rolling by, don’t worry. You’re not having a tomato sauce induced hallucination.
A 28-foot long, 12-foot wide and 11.5-foot tall potato will be making a stop at Garibaldi’s Walker Avenue location in order to raise money for Meals on Wheels and to drum up a little publicity for the Idaho Potato Commission.
It’s called the Great Big Idaho Potato. And “Great Big” isn’t overstating the size of this thing. It weighs 6-tons.
The only bad thing about the massive potato? It’s not edible.
The potato will be at the restaurant from 3 p.m. until 5 p.m.
