The Utah Arts Festival owes a huge debt to its neighbors to the north in Idaho.
At the Fresh Cut French Fry booth, "we used between two and three tons of potatoes last year," said Alyssa McCollin, one of the people working the booth. (McCollin's aunt and uncle operate both the french-fry stand and the Scrumptious burger stand next to it.)
McCollin said she expects even bigger sales this year, because the weather is expected to be more temperate. "Last year, it was soooo hot," she said.
