~ Chicago, IL - As National French Fry Day approaches, McCain Foods is gearing up to celebrate in a big way. The brand, known for producing 1 out of every 4 french fries consumed around the world, is taking its love for fries to the next level by declaring July 12 as a real holiday. To mark the occasion, McCain is unveiling the World's First French Fry House in Chicago.

Located at 224 N Elmwood Ave in Oak Park, the two-story house will be transformed into a fry lover's paradise with an array of fry-themed decorations. From giant French fry inflatables and extravagant holiday lights to trees and shrubbery covered in themed ornaments, the house will be a testament to potato love.

The festivities will take place on July 12 and 13 from 5-10pm and are open to all visitors. Guests can expect to enjoy free McCain French fries topped with delicious sauces and seasonings while supplies last. They can also participate in a French fry sing-along and meet Father Frymas, the holiday hero.

To kick off the celebrations, McCain has enlisted comedian and cookbook author Eric Wareheim as their National French Fry Day campaign spokesperson. In a video that will air on McCain's YouTube channel on July 12, Wareheim passionately educates his neighbor on the significance of National French Fry Day as a national holiday. He also shares his go-to recipe using McCain's Quick Cook products to create the ultimate Poutine dish.
