Potato lovers head to the Peconic Bay Winery on the East End for Long Island's first Potato Festival.

This festival celebrates potatoes in all forms - chips, real Mr. Potato Heads decorated with vegetables, flavored chipstix, and more. Attendees can also enjoy live music, do a beanbag toss, and even compete in a mashed potato eating contest.

Funds raised through ticket sales are being donated to the Alzheimer's Association.
