Parm Crack Under the Big Top

Step right up ladies and gentlemen to the greatest show (and cheese) in Arlington, and witness the incredible strength and cutting skills of Ironman Andy as he attempts to crack open a gigantic wheel of Parmigiano Reggiano in 30 seconds! The show begins promptly at 2 pm, so be sure to arrive early and meet the Magnificent Muscle Trio in their first ever appearance under the big top. Test your own strength and guess the weight of Ironman Andy's parm wheel - the person who comes the closest to the actual weight without going over will win a big time prize.
