Once a year, the Sidewalk Film Festival hosts its fundraising event, the
Salsa Showdown–a combination food festival and family day out. But
the real highlight is the freak show that is hot pepper eating contest.
Here contestants eat increasing spicy peppers up to and including the
‘ghost pepper’–the hottest pepper known to mankind. There is no real
reward, except bragging rights, yet it holds host to many university
researchers, doctors, and other successful people from different walks
of life who seem to make appallingly bad decisions in their free time.
Never play chicken with the hottest pepper in the world.
