Spicy foods have turned into something of a pastime for people. Big questions surround hot foods, like: Can you eat a ghost pepper? How fast can you eat five atomic wings? And, most importantly, will you cry or puke after eating this? 

The seventh annual Jungle Jim’s Weekend of Fire sets out every year to help you in your quest to find these answers. Sporting more than 350 different fiery foods, ranging from mild to you-will-need-an-ambulance, this food festival is not for the faint of heart. Not only can you sample spicy food, you can go head-to-head in the Arena of Fire against others looking to prove they too have an iron gut. 

11 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturday; 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday. $8 adults; $1 children ages 5-12; free for ages 4 and under. Oscar Event Center, 5440 Dixie Highway, Fairfield, 513-674-6055, junglejims.com.
