Saturday was a glorious day to celebrate the 85th edition of Shelleyâ€™s Spud Day. Thousands attended.
This yearâ€™s theme was â€œUnder the Big Top" and the Spud Day committee certainly delivered.
The parade featured Miss Russet--Carly Nelson--and her court, cheerleaders, dancers, politicians, floats and farm equipment.
Seven thousand baked potatoes were prepared for all comers. At noon, people lined up across the city park to receive a potato loaded with butter, sour cream and cheese. Milk was also served.
