Pancake Eating Contest

Firefighters Challenge. Open to the public, and follows the log-sawing competition on the main stage, in its new location beside the pancake house.

This is our 20th annual EMSF Worldwide Pancake-eating Contest. MCs Tim & Tom have been working the phones for months trying to find hearty participants for this world-renowned competition.  Local firefighter James Doan, winner of the last two pancake-eating contests, will once again be participating for a ‘three-peat’.  Young Elmvale Firefighter, Preston Jamieson was runner up last year.  He will be seated beside Doan, trying to win the 2018 Maple Syrup Pancake-eating contest.

There are two divisions, firefighter and open. Rules were set. Participants need to consume five large-sized pancakes covered with maple syrup, supplied by our local producers, Greenlaw and Lalonde, in the fastest time possible.  Everything must stay down!  Due to the choking danger, it was decided by majority vote that water will be provided. The contest is open to the public and follows the log-sawing competition on the main stage. Come early to sign up and have a chance at winning. This event would not be successful without the support of the Elmvale Firefighters.

Come out and support the competitors, but don’t get too close. This can get messy!
