Idaho Looking To Build ‘Glowtato’ For 2017 New Year Countdown Drop
Admit it - Idaho does some weird stuff. Ask anyone not from here and you'll get stories about our weird obsession with potatoes, alpacas, radioactive towns and Bigfoot monsters.
Well, things are about to get even more weird. Organizers of the Idaho potato drop are looking for donations to build a new potato to drop on New Years. This potato will be gigantic, made of fiberglass, and glow from the inside! We've already had giant potatoes drop on New Year's, but this one will be special.
The Idaho Statesman reports that only about half the necessary money has been donated.
