Clarence, NY (PRWEB) September 02, 2014
The Great Pumpkin Farm in Clarence, New York is known all over the East Coast as the “Can’t Miss” Fall Festival and is the region’s largest family event that is open to the public between September 13th though October 31st. In 2010, The Great Pumpkin Farm and All Pro Eating introduced the World’s first Officially Sanctioned Hands Free Pumpkin Pie Eating Championship which has grown every year since its introduction. In 2014, The Great Pumpkin Farm World Hands Free Pumpkin Pie Eating Championship continues the legacy of being the only Officially Sanctioned and longest consecutive Hands Free Competitive Eating Championship in the World. The Eating Championship is scheduled to take place on September 28, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. and should see high levels of participation from both Professional and Amateur Competitive Eaters as they compete for a share of the $1,800.00 prize pool that has historically increased on the day of the event and awarding up to $1,500.00 to the first place finisher.
Todd Greenwald, Chairman of All Pro Eating, commented, “The Great Pumpkin Farm impresses me every year not only with their magnificent venue that has significantly increased in size and entertainment but I am fascinated by the dedication and commitment that owner Kelly Schultz has for the entire community. The Great Pumpkin Farm World Hands Free Pumpkin Pie Eating Championship is one of the great epicenters in our Sport and celebrates the pure American spirit of competition that dates back hundreds of years when pie eating contests were the highlight of every fair and festival.” Greenwald continued, “There has been a new World Eating Record established every year at The Great Pumpkin Farm World Hands Free Pumpkin Pie Eating Championship. There has been only one back-to-back champion and the suspense and action last year was some of the best I have ever experienced. Last year’s winner, Jamie “The Bear” McDonald won by a single bite and consumed 12 pounds of pumpkin pie, hands free, in 10 minutes. All Pro Eating is proud to be involved again this year and I cannot wait to feel the energy and declare the winner of the 2014 Great Pumpkin Farm World Hands Free Pumpkin Pie Eating Championship!”
All Pro Eating expects participation from some of the greatest Competitive Eaters in the world including #1 Ranked Independent Competitive Eater, Molly Schuyler and #4 Ranked Independent Competitive Eater, David “Tiger Wings and Things” Brunelli in addition to local favorite “Big” Dave Werick who will once again try to bring home the World Hands Free Pumpkin Pie Eating Champion title. All Professional and Amateur Competitive Eaters over the age of 18 are encouraged to register for the event which has historically had event-day involvement from 20 participants. On-site registration will be allowed on September 28th two hours prior to The Great Pumpkin Farm World Hands-Free Pumpkin Pie Eating Championship in addition to on-line registration for anyone interested in participating.
