All eyes were peeled and on the main event at the spud-tacular Barnesville Potato Days. A-peeling events like these draw in 17,000 people over the weekend. The 13th annual mashed potato wrestling event is back, and as messy and popular as ever. Don't let the fact that these wrestlers are in dresses fool you. They whipped each other into shape…Brutal. The lone male in this heat, Taylor was a great sport in a lot of ways tonight. He lost a bet and ended up in a dress too.

Taylor Aarness – Mashed Potato Wrestler: “Went in there kind of expecting it to be a free for all - but it kinda got beat on a little bit.”

Potato days runs through Saturday, ending with the big street dance until 1 AM. For more info on the schedule check out http://www.potatodays.com
