Grab your strongest friends and team up for the ultimate tug of war challenge! Teams of 10 will compete for time as they pull a fully loaded 20-ton fire truck down Academy Street in downtown Newark.

This first-of-its-kind Newark event promises to be exciting and fun for all ages!

Prizes will be awarded to the fastest all male, all female and co-ed teams. A special award will be given to the team that raises the most money.
