Now here's a special treat for you.

As part of an annual Saint Patrick's Day tradition, the Fort Wayne Get Green Festival held this past Monday has a Lucky Charms eating contest.

WFFT meteorologist Andrew Logsdon was there to capture it all.

It's this week's Weatherman Versus Food.

This week, it's a holiday lucky streak.

Kids to adults compete every year in the Lucky Charms eating contest at the Get Green Festival.

The winner- the first to eat an entire bowl, plus carton of milk, is the winner of their age bracket.

"Let's bring up the six and under contestants! Six years and under, come on up!"

"Go! Go! Go!"

The youngest go first, and this year's winner, Kaden Bush!

Now, seven-through-nine.

"Get set, go!"

The race comes down to these two.

In the end, Grace Bush pulls it out.

"It's the leprechaun's gold for you, young lady!"

Now ten through twelve.

Yes, that's another Bush kid.

For the sixth year in a row, winner Tom Bush.

Teenagers, thirteen through seventeen.


Just seven, but they can eat.

"He just went vertical with the bowl!"

Armando Reed breaks the bush streak.

"We got a winner!"

And he gets the trophy.

But now, the big boys and girls.

They'll eat two bowls, and two milks.


They go fast, and it's a close finish!

"Nate Bush got in there by half a bite."

The daddy, Nate Bush, wins it all!

We should get that whole family in for a food challenge.
