More about the "Pink Lady" ftom the Charlotte Fire Department here.
Teams made up of six to eight people can compete in three categories: all male, all female or co-ed.
Teams will be timed as they pull the firetruck 50 feet. Winning teams in each category will receive prizes.
More than 20 teams are expected to compete.
The truck pull will begin at 1 p.m. Sunday along the 900 block of Hamilton Street, near the NC Music Factory.
People who haven’t registered but want to participate can sign up on-site starting at 1 p.m. Sunday.
Those who can’t find friends willing to pull a firetruck in late July can sign up individually, and they’ll be placed on a team with others.
The cost for a team entry is $150, and individual entry is $25.
