Gourmet hot dog eating contest featured at Derby Days in Crystal Beach


A rather unconventional hotdog eating contest will be one of the highlights today at Derby Days in Crystal Beach.

Contest organizer Shane Therrien says a total of 10 participants will face the challenge of finishing 7 gourmet hotdogs in the 15 minute timeframe.

A pulled pork hot dog, a mac n' cheese dog, as well as a pizza hot dog will be among the selection for the ravenous contestants.

Derby Days is on today in Crystal Beach from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. and will also feature local artwork and activities for the kids.

The hotdog eating contest starts at 1 p.m.
