Registration is now open for Couch Potato Race sponsored by the YMCA of the Northwoods. The event is held in conjunction with PotatoFest.

Participants are asked to decorate and attach wheels to a minimum of a 70'' long couch, to be raced downtown. The five-member teams will consist of four “pushers” and one “rider”. Participants must be over 16-years-old.

PotatoFest is August 31 in Rhinelander. Couch inspections begin at 9 a.m.; the race is at 10 a.m.

Cost is $100 per team. The registration form and payment can be mailed or dropped off at the YMCA location located at 2003 E. Winnebago Street, Rhinelander, WI 54501.

PotatoFest is a family-friendly event filled with activities such as a kids, pet and character parade, a French Fry Frenzy, Lit'l Miss and Lit'l Mr. Tator Tot Potato Sack Outfit Contest, a potato cook-off and so much more. This is a community event so all groups, organizations, clubs, churches or schools are invited to participate by volunteering or having a food booth.
