GRAND FORKS, North Dakota — Organizers of an annual french fry feed in Grand Forks say they broke their own record.
The event dubbed the "World's Largest French Fry Feed" is held during the annual Potato Bowl week that celebrates the potato industry in the Red River Valley.
KNOX radio reports that 5,130 pounds of fries were served on Thursday, breaking the 2011 record by 120 pounds. About 10,000 people chowed down.
The J.R. Simplot Co., which has a fry plant in Grand Forks, supplies the spuds, condiments and volunteers.
The Red River Valley in eastern North Dakota is the largest producer of red potatoes in the United States.
