Police officers and firefighters are certainly brave, but the ones battling it out at Bring the Heat on Dec. 8 might be a little crazy, too.
Starting at 4 p.m. at Whataburger, 4030 N. College Ave., teams from the Fayetteville Fire Department and Fayetteville Police Department will battle it out in a jalapeño-eating contest for a good cause. Members from each team will compete against one another to see who can consume the most jalapeños in 60 seconds.
The “winner” receives a $1,000 donation for a charity of their choice – Senior Center Giving Tree or Firefighters Scholarship Fund. Additionally, the team with the most fans will win an additional $500.
So, come out, choose a side, cheer them on and show your support! Bring the Heat will be one of the funniest — and hottest — things to do in Fayetteville and Northwest Arkansas. The event also includes a DJ, games and prizes.
