"This year [NFFD] falls on a Friday—it seemed like the perfect opportunity to celebrate our love of fries with the Treasure Valley community," said Lamb Weston communications and external relations spokesperson Shelby Stoolman. "We'll be serving four popular types of fries and asking attendees to vote for their favorite."
Lamb Weston's mobile fry trailers will keep busy from 3-6 p.m., transforming frozen fries into crisp morsels of salty goodness. In addition to voting in the fry contest, guests can take part in a prize giveaway (including potential to score free fries for a year), commemorate the day's greasy fingers in a photo booth and jam out to music from local radio station 102.7 KZMG.
With all proceeds going to the foodbank—which provides five meals to hungry Idahoans for every dollar it collects—there's really no downside to showing up. So grab your wallet, and get ready to celebrate the spud in true Idaho style.
