Bagel Eating Contest Saturday August 24th @ 9:30AM


Lake in the Hills, IL., Aug 24, 2019 – Ira’s Bagels is proud to announce the first annual “ Ira’s Bagel Eating Contest" scheduled for Saturday August 24, 2019 at 9:30AM. 

The 5-minute all-you-can-eat bagel contest will take place at Ira’s Bagels; 9471 Ackman Road, Lake in the Hills. Bagel lovers across Northern Illinois will be competing for a lot of bagels; literally, as the winner will be awarded Bagels for a Year.

"The idea for a Bagel Eating Contest was a no brainer," said Ira Handelsman, one of the owners at Ira’s Bagels.  “Being a fan of the Annual 4th of July Nathans Hot Dog Eating Contest, why can’t we duplicate the success and fun with our Bagels."  “There has been a Bagel eating contest in New York, so why not us here in Illinois,” said Handelsman

Those interested in competing in the Bagel Eating Contest should fill out the form below. All competitors must be over 18 years of age. 

The Bagel eating contest is just one of the fun events that we have scheduled for that day which is also our 2nd Anniversary Party. The fun-filled morning will include the famous crooner, Johnny Maggio, bagel games and more!
