Weird Contest Weekin Ocean City, NJ, USA
Weird Contest Week
While this annual August event is different every year, you can expect some mainstays like Taffy Sculpting, French Fry Sculpting, Artistic Pie Eating (boats, seagulls, the state of New Jersey), Wet T-shirt Tossing (record: 165 feet), Putrid Puns and Celebrity Super Hero Impersonations.
Events occur daily at 11:00 am in front of the Music Pier, Boardwalk and Moorlyn Terrace. The grand finale is the highly fashionable Miss Miscellaneous Contest. They've even created a song: "Miss Miscellaneous, so, so spontaneous, never extraneous, even if it would rain on us, it wouldn't be a pain to us, because we adore you, we adore you, Miss Miscellaneous."
