Coney Island and Deer Park Pub have teamed up to celebrate Coney Island's 100 year anniversary!
We are inviting 100 contestants to enter the "Hot dog Heats" on June 7th where they will compete in a classic Coney Island hot dog eating contest with a Coney Island/Deer Park twist.
Contestants will receive a limited edition Coney Island 100th year anniversary T-Shirt, a bag of "swag", free coupons to Coney Island and Deer Park, 100th anniversary limited edition cup, and a chance to compete in the coney dog eating contest during the Three Rivers Festival!
We will have 10 heats of 10 contestants take the stage in the beer tent at Deer Park. Each contestant will be timed eating 10 hot dogs (or as many as they can eat in 10 minutes). The fastest 10 times will move on to the final competition at the Three Rivers Festival. There will be prizes for:
