About the Holiday

Sidewalk Egg Frying Day is a perfect time to try this energy efficient solar way of cooking. It shares the same holiday as the 4th of July. So as you throw fireworks toss an egg on the sidewalk and watch it fry. An egg needs temperature of 158 degrees Fahrenheit to get firm. The top two bigger US cities that get temps of 100 Fahrenheit or more the most often are Phoenix, AZ and Las Vegas, NV. Oatman, AZ actually celebrates this holiday at high noon with a sidewalk egg frying contest held on historic Route 66. There is a 15 minute time limit to fry your egg. Contestants often use mirrors or a magnifying glass to aid their egg and the dry air helps as well.
