About Oatman Sidewalk Egg Frying Contest

The Oatman Sidewalk Egg Frying Contest is one of the reasons responsible to make the Oatman city a blistering city every July. The sidewalks enclosing this 150-person town get fairly hot during this time when approximately 20 contestants prove their mettle to fry egg in 15 minutes or less in front of 1,500 spectators, and use anything from aluminum foil to magnifying glasses to homegrown solar device to create "the most edible egg." According to the Library of Congress, the high heat and low humidity of Arizona makes the situation of eggs advantageous for the participants and hence dry out faster during the process. As far as the rule is concerned, they are relatively simple. It includes two eggs for each team and a freedom to use any kind of utensil or pan, or any mechanism of his choice to support them greatly so that the eggs can be cooked with solar power in 15 minutes or less time. Further, the participants are also supposed to preserve their eggs from the wild burros themselves. Since 1991 the contest has been running under the guidance of his initiator, Mr. Fred Eck of the Oatman Chamber of Commerce. And in the end, the prizes and medals are given for the youngest contestant, absolute showmanship best costume, best cooking contraption and the contestant who's traveled farthest.
