New Jersey Folks Fall To Become Royalty

OCEAN CITY, N.J. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – People are hitting the sand hard to be named king and queen of Ocean City, New Jersey.

The Mr. Fall Guy and Miss Fall Gal Pageant comes to the beach town this Friday (Aug. 29), crowning those with the most unique and dramatic fall the king and queen of plop.

The pageant rings in the beginning of the fall season, with participants creating elaborate costumes and theatrical falls onto the sand.

To get the full effect, fallen beauties must throw themselves to the ground in slow motion.

Original falls have included an Alice in Wonderland- themed fall inspired by the part in the movie where Alice falls through the rabbit hole, and falling realtors depicting the drop in housing sales.

Event spokesperson Mark Soifer says the crazier the fall, the better, and hopes the special pageant entertainment – a wacky Elvis impersonator – inspires terrific tumbles.

The King sings “I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You,” but changes the song to “I Can’t Help Falling In The Sand For You.”
