Bagel enthusiasts compete in Downtown Brooklyn’s BagelFest Winter Games


The event features a bagel tower competition in which contestants must stack as many bagels as possible and ensure they last for a minute.

There will also be a contest to see who can eat the most bagels in eight minutes. The champion wins $500 in cash and the runner-up wins $250.

For those who don’t want to overload themselves with carbs, there’s a bagel flight with half a dozen samples and a mimosa bar. Another competition is the Bagel Toss.

This is BagelFest’s first bagel-eating contest and the organizers hope to host it again next year.
