Cheese Rolling Contest Returns For A Second Year - Free Contest Entry For Media

MACUNGIE, PA. – The Lehigh Valley’s only Cheese Rolling contest will be held on Sunday, August 19, 2012 at 2pm at Bear Creek Mountain Resort and Conference Center on the bank above the pond. The contest will be held in combination with the Cheese, Garlic and Summer Mountain Festival, running from noon-5pm.  Both events will be held rain or shine.

Participants will race after a wheel of cheese that is rolled down a hill. The first competitor to catch the cheese, wins the competition and the cheese. This event is modeled after the Cooper’s Hill Cheese Rolling in England.
