There will be Face Painting with Allison Parker, Sweet Samplings, Raffles, Goodie Bags, and what we’re all waiting for, the 2nd Annual Cupcake Eating Contest. This year it’s going to be bigger and better with 10 contestants competing to finish 2 dozen cupcakes in 12 minutes.
It’s also going to be a great day to fight hunger as Cupcake Participants will be donating half of their entry fee to The Food Bank for New York City. Raffle collections and a portion of proceeds from sales will also be going to the Food Bank.
