OnMilwaukee Donut & Coffee Fest takes place Sunday, May 1, at Turner Hall, 1034 Vel Phillips Ave., and although technically the event is sold out, there is a way to still get a ticket.

That is, as long as you're willing to attempt eating 20 donuts. Without your hands. In front of a crowd of people.

Still interested? OnMilwaukee is looking for six people to compete and two alternates in the donut eating contest, brought to you by Rebel Hard, during the upcoming Donut & Coffee Fest. 

Participants will compete to be the first to consume a tower of Happy Dough Lucky donuts. Again, sans hands.

The first eight to sign up get a free ticket to the event and the winner will receive a sweet, sweet medal and bragging rights for life. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and the donut eating contest starts promptly at 11:30 on the Turner Hall stage.

Sign up to compete here . Must be at least 18 years old to enter. We will notify the first eight people (six contestants and two alternates) via email on Monday, April 25.
