CocoWalk Celebrates the 4th of July!

 The Annual Hot Dog Eating Competition Continues

It’s already the 4th of July, so it must be time for the 5th Annual Independence Hot Dog Eating Competition at CocoWalk! This year’s family event begins at 1 p.m. and includes live music with Mr. Ree, along with a balloon twister and face painter from 1 to 4 p.m. The night gets hotter when South Florida’s popular Sans of Tyme delivers Classic Rock from 7 to 11 p.m.

The annual hot dog eating contest is always a crowd favorite, and it will take place in the Courtyard at 4 p.m. This year’s contest is sponsored again by Paragon Grove 13. Last year’s Champion, Juan Angel, consumed 10 hot dogs in 10 minutes and walked away with more than $1,000 in gifts and prizes! Runner-up Daniel Encinosa managed seven dogs to receive a prize package worth $150.00.

Sans of Tyme will Rock the Walk beginning at 7 p.m. Everyone is invited to watch the 9 o’clock fireworks in Peacock Park from one of our spacious outdoor balconies.

CocoWalk is looking for five competitors willing to eat as many hot dogs as they can in 10 minutes, but only one can take home the coveted title Hot Dog Eating Champion - and collect the grand prize package! An assortment of fantastic prizes for all the game winners and runners-up are provided by the CocoWalk merchants and local businesses. Check for more details and updates.
