Steve's Snappin' Dogs 5th Annual Hot Dog Eating Contest

     Steve's Snappin' Dogs (an East Coast-style hot dog joint located at 3525 East Colfax Avenue) will host its 5th annual hot dog eating contest on Sunday, September 2, 2012 at 11:00 a.m., in Civic Center Park as part of A Taste of Colorado's Culinary Showcase. The event will feature one dozen contestants who will compete in an eight minute hot dog eating competition. The winner will be crowned "Top Dog of Denver" and first, second and third place winners will receive trophies in honor of their successful placement.

      Unlike other hot dog eating contests, Steve's Snappin' Dogs requires contestants to eat their hot dogs picnic style - bun and all, with no dunking allowed. The event is open to the first dozen applicants who
sign up prior to the event and is free of charge to enter. Each participating contestant will receive a free "Bite Me" T-Shirt provided by Steve's and a certificate of participation as well as coupons to Steve’s Snappin Dogs for future enjoyment and bragging rights.

      This highly visual event is free, open to the general public, and will take place in Civic Center Park as part of A Taste of Colorado's Culinary Showcase. Contestants will be picked on a First Come – First serve basis. To qualify, potential contestants must sign up at 10:30 a.m., at the Culinary Showcase Tent located at the Greek Amphitheatre in Civic Center Park.
