    Name: First Annual July 4th Hot Dog Eating Contest Sponsored By Sonic Drive-In
    Date: July 4, 2020
    Time: 6:30 PM - 7:00 PM CDT
    Event Description:
    Think you have the stomach to win the first annual Canton Texas Chamber of Commerce (CTCC) Hot Dog Eating Contest? Would a grand prize of $500 give you a little motivation?
    If so, all you need to do is fill out your application, pay your $20, get your free T-shirt and eat more hot dogs in 10 minutes than your competitors. Sounds simple, right?
    Starting at 6:30 p.m., Saturday, July 4, in downtown Canton, the CTCC will host an evening of Fourth of July family events including a Watermelon Eating Contest for children, the First Annual Hot Dog Eating Contest for adult men and women, the Fourth of July parade and a spectacular Fireworks Show put on by the City of Canton.
    SONIC of Canton is sponsoring our very first Hot Dog Eating Contest and we are anticipating a great turnout for the event.
    Thanks to SONIC, we are going to create a great event with a grand prize of $500. We feel this grand prize will help attract competitive eaters for our first annual contest.
    Since this is our first time to host this event, we are not expecting Joey ‘Jaws’ Chestnut to show up and finish off 71 hot dogs, but we are expecting to attract some real competitive eaters from around the area.
    If you think you have what it takes, be sure to reserve your seat at the table by contacting Haylee Griggs at the Canton Texas Chamber of Commerce.
    The cost to enter is only $20 and it includes your event T-shirt to wear during the contest and all the hot dogs you can eat. We are limiting the number of contestants to a maximum of 25. The first 25 to register and pay will compete. To register, contact Haylee Griggs at 903-567-2991 or by email at info@cantontexaschamber.com.
