If you ever wanted to compete in a cherry pit spitting contest, today is the day to get started. It began back in 1974 with Herb Teichman in Eau Claire, NH who created the event with contestants ending up spitting a cherry seed over 100’4″ as the world record. That’s 1/3 the length of a football field! The event is always held on the first Saturday in July. If you break the record does that make you a professional cherry spitter?
How to celebrate – Start a cherry spitting even of your own. Practice spitting cherry pits and see how you fair. Visit Eau Claire, NH on the first Saturday in July.
