It's a dream come true for lovers of food challenges and Pierogi.

Polish Days in Utica are August 18th and 19th at the Polish Community Club. You should start preparing your stomach now, because August 18th is their annual Pierogi Eating Contest!

If you're 18 years of age or older, for an entry fee of ten dollars, can you eat the most Pierogis in three minutes? You'll be given a platter of three dozen of Pierogi to tackle all by yourself (or more, if you can eat that many.)

For those who are interested in competing in the contest, there are two ways of entering: you can enter in person by going to the PCC, filling out the form, and paying the $10 fee. Or, you can fill out the form below, attach the $10 fee, mail it to the PCC, and you’re ready to go!

The participant who eats the most will not only be crowned the 2018 PCC Pierogi Eating Champion, but there is also a cash prize!

According to the PCC's Facebook Page, their Potato and Cheese Pierogi will be served up for the contest. Members and non-members are welcome to participate.

So, August 18th, write it on your calendar. Start training. Do some stretches, maximize the amount of room in your stomach. Good luck!
