Later today, teams of two will enter a ring filled with mashed potatoes and wrestle another team. 

This is just one of several potato-related events going on today and tomorrow in Minnesota during “Potato Days.”

This is video we found on YouTube from the same event three years ago.

Each year, 12 teams compete for two 3-minute rounds.

According to the event website, each person gets a free t-shirt.

And people on the sidelines are encouraged to bring a camera.

The Potato Days Festival has been going on since the 1930s.

A mashed potato eating contest takes place tomorrow.
