On Saturday (Jun. 7), as part of the 67th Annual Harvard Milk Days festival, up to 125,000 people will head to Harvard, Illinois, to watch 100 chugging competitors face off in the Milk Drinking Contest.
While chugging a quart of whole milk in the current record time of 15 seconds seems downright dangerous, spokesperson Wanda Marzahl says vomiting at the drink-off isnt as rampant as youd think.
She says, People dont feel too good afterwards, but theres only three people or so that vomit each year. They must practice before they come!
Anyones welcome to compete, but Marzahl says casual chuggers dont stand a chance against the hometown milk masters.
She says, People who pass through town will enter and think they can beat these kids who compete every year, but they never do. Theyre usually the ones who get sick.
Though drinkers have all types of strategies, Marzahls only advice is, Dont ride the rides before.
