Warm up your throwing arm. The London Rib and Jazz Festival has announced who will be taking the hot seat — er, the wet seat — at the festival’s dunk tank.

The festival is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 4 and Saturday, Aug. 5 from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. in historic downtown London.

Politicians, public figures and area coaches are among the list of the lucky few who will take the plunge for a good cause in the annual Dunk-A-Dignitary event. This year, all proceeds from the tank will go to the London Youth Football and Cheer organization.

The tank will be in session from 4:30-9:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Pitchers can give dunking a try for $1 for one ball, $3 for five balls and $5 for 10 balls.

• 5:30-6:30 p.m. — London Police Chief Glenn Nicol

• 6:30-7:30 p.m. — Madison County Assistant Prosecutor Nick Adkins
