Clarence, NY (PRWEB) September 03, 2013
The Great Pumpkin Farm in Clarence, New York continues the tradition started in 2010 and will once again celebrate Autumn in America in the most marvelous manner after officially announcing The 4th Annual Great Pumpkin Farm World Hands-Free Pumpkin Pie Eating Championship which will take place on September 29, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. at their annual forty eight day long Fall Festival. This World Competitive Eating Championship will again be officially sanctioned by All Pro Eating and will feature some of the top Professional, Amateur and local Pumpkin Pie Competitive Eaters as they all travel to New York’s finest fall family festival. Competitive Eaters will battle for their share of a $1,800.00 prize pool that will award $1,000.00 to the first place finisher. Anyone over the age of 18 is encouraged to participate.
Todd Greenwald, Chairman of All Pro Eating, stated, “Once again, The Great Pumpkin Farm will be the venue where Competitive Eating dreams are realized and Pumpkin Pie, eaten hands free, will determine who is indeed worthy of being considered one of the World’s finest all around Food Warriors. The energy and excitement for this event can be felt from miles away as the entire town anticipates the arrival of these Pumpkin Pie pugilists.” Greenwald continued, “These hallowed grounds have crowned a World Eating Champion every year since 2010 in addition to the announcement of a new World Eating Record. This is the event for Competitive Eating purists – when you mix pie with ‘hands free’ eating, you create Americana that has been celebrated since the 1800’s. I expect records to be challenged and I expect to see The Great Pumpkin Farm once again loudly proclaim that they are the only recognized venue for Competitive Pumpkin Pie Eating in the entire world!”
