YORK -- July 13TH is National French Fry Day, and Downtown Inc CEO Silas Chamberlin will celebrate accordingly. The York County Native says he is going to eat fries at 27 locations throughout Downtown York. Downtown Inc is calling the historic deep-fried day the First-Ever Downtown York Fantastic French Fry Frenzy.

The epic French fry crawl will begin at 7:30 a.m. at Central Family Restaurant and conclude at 9:30 p.m. at Holy Hound Taproom. In between, Chamberlin will sample French fries at conventional locations like McDonald’s, as well as unexpected stops such as Hamir’s Indian Fusion and PeoplesBank Park.

J.R.’s French Fries, the iconic Central Market French fry stand, will even offer special hours during National French Fry Day, opening from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Celebrity tasters will join Chamberlin to share some fries, cheer him on and celebrate our great downtown businesses.
