Food Truck Wars
October 22, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Here are the categories: Food Truck (an actual truck or trailer, something mobile, type of food is open) Lord of the Rings (an onion ring contest) and On-a-Stick (a fried food on a stick). Three different divisions – three different winners. Entry fee is $50 with a trophy to the winner of each category. Plus each winner will get exclusive food vending rights during one of the Love-Hatbox events for 2018.
Here are the rules: Each contestant will be given a bucket (or receptacle of some sort). Each person entering the park for the Finch Camp will receive a set number of tickets; number of tickets will be determined by the number of contestants. For example, if there are seven contestants, each person will receive seven tickets. Additional tickets may be purchased, five tickets for $1. Contestants will provide sample-sized portions of their product; these must be “purchased” by providing the contestant with one of the tickets. They give you a ticket – you give them a sample. At the end of the camp, the contestant with the most tickets is the winner. There will also be a drawing from each vendor for a free full portion of your food item; that will be at the end of the contest. If there is a tie, there will be a 30-minute “cook-off”. Rules for that will be announced in the event of a tie.
People may purchase full sized portions of your product(s) but that will not count for the contest; only tickets in the bucket count. Contestants may not sell drinks; Love-Hatbox will be the sole vendor for drinks and will try to not sell competing food items. We will sell packaged items, such as candy, chips, popcorn and the like. We will only sell hot food items if no one in the contest is selling the items we normally sell.
Entry deadline for this food contest is 4pm, Wednesday, October 18.
