Break out the stretchy pants and prepare to wolf down a pizza in record time.

 This year’s Woodcroft Lakes Festival in Blacktown City is looking for Australia’s fastest pizza eater.

 “The world record for eating a 12-inch pizza of 23.62 sec was set by Kelvin Medina in Manilla, the Philippines, on 12 April 2015,” Acting Mayor of Blacktown City, Councillor Tony Bleasdale said.

 “We are looking for pizza eaters to register and see if they can break the 23 second barrier.

 “The competition is open to all comers, aged 18 years or older.

 “We could have a legend in the bakin’ right here in Blacktown – they just need a chance to rise to the occasion,” he said.

 “The Woodcroft Pizza King or Queen is out there waiting to be crowned.”

 Organised by local residents and Blacktown City Council, the free family fun day is on Saturday September 23, 10am-4pm.

 “We started this festival in 2005 because we wanted to do something for the community,” Woodcroft Lakes Festival Committee President Lucas Cayanan said.

 “The Woodcroft community was new back then, but it’s been growing and growing.

 “The festival is all about bringing everyone together and celebrating what we love about living in Woodcroft.”

Festival goers are encouraged to enter the Woodcroft Talent Quest and Woodcroft Dog Show with prizes up for grabs.

Aside from friendly competitions, there will be more than 50 market stalls, singing and dancing performances and the popular Woodcroft Lake trackless train for visitors to enjoy.

 “There is so much entertainment and fun on offer and the best thing is it’s free,” Acting Mayor Bleasdale said.

 “These days so many activities cost money, but at Woodcroft Lakes Festival you can enjoy a fun day for the whole family without burning a hole in your wallet.

 “I congratulate and thank everyone involved in organising this event for their hard work and efforts: it is people like you who make our community great.”

 The Woodcroft Lake Festival will be held on Saturday 23 September, 10am to 4pm, Woodcroft Drive, Woodcroft.
