Adults Get Gross At Baby Food Fest

FREMONT, Mich. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Too much baby food can leave you crying for help.

Tomorrow (Jul. 18) through Saturday (Jul. 19), nearly 100,000 people will crawl over to Fremont, Michigan, for the 18th Annual National Baby Food Festival.

With its headquarters in Fremont, the Gerber Baby empire has been nourishing newborns for 80 years, and the festival’s Baby Food Eating Contest gives appreciative adults the chance to give back – literally.

Festival Coordinator Lina Strong says the feeding frenzy, in which a blindfolded person force-feeds baby food to his or her partner, makes for a massive and messy meal, and often has adults throwing up from too much baby binging.

Luckily, Strong says it’s mostly the adults who get gross, as changing tables, “rock and rest” stations, and tons of toddler treats keep bouncing babies happy and healthy.

The baby fest also features turtle races, frog jumping contests, baby karaoke, and the famous Baby Crawl.
