The Original House of Donuts is celebrating its 60th birthday this week. The donut shop originally opened in the summer of 1959, paving the way for confectionary shops throughout the region. Today, Original House of Donuts still makes its donuts from scratch everyday in its Lakewood and Tacoma locations.

With 60 years and millions of donuts under its belt, the company is ready for the festivities to begin. This week, different specials and offers will be available daily. Follow the Original House of Donuts on Facebook to stay up-to-date on daily details.

The celebration will culminate in a donut eating contest on Saturday, Aug. 24. Participants will eat as many glazed cake donuts as they can within five minutes for a chance to win the grand prize: Free donuts for one year (one dozen donuts per month for 12 months), an Original House of Donuts T-shirt, a Donut Championship trophy, and their name on the Official World Donut Championship Trophy displayed in the store. The last day to enter the contest is Monday, Aug. 19. Official contest rules here.
