FAIRFIELD, OH (FOX19) -

Sunday is the last day for hot sauce fanatics in the Tri-State to try more than 300 samples and participate in extreme-heat challenges at the ‘Weekend of Fire.'

The fiery foods show, hosted by Jungle Jim's, features 500 vendors from across the country offering up their hottest items. And it's not just for the extreme-heat lovers. The event features mild salsas along with rubs, mustards and BBQ sauce.

A heated competition will take place in the ‘Arena of Fire,' where visitors can participate in hot, gross or sticky contests. The Pizza Inferno happens at 11:45 a.m. and challenges fire fanatics to eat a pizza topped with Carolina Reaper and Scorpion peppers, the two hottest peppers in the world.

Heat-injected coneys are featured at 2 p.m. in the famous Rockin' Hot Coneys challenge. Don McBride, Jungle Jims' very own Pepperologist, claimed a coney in last year's contest was one of the hottest things he had ever tried to eat.

The last competitor standing wins, and empty containers are on hand awaiting anything that won't stay down. 

Brave souls can sign up for the contests at the event, located at the Fairfield Jungle Jim's location. You can find ticketing and schedule information here.

The Weekend of Fire is fun for the entire family, with a Bobbing for Wings and Dirt Dessert challenge for kids taking place Sunday afternoon.
