Jefferson hot-dog eating contest planned
OAK RIDGE — The fourth annual hot dog eating contest will return to the Jefferson Township Day’s 28th celebration on Saturday, July 12.
The contest is open to ages 8 to 17 and 18 through 91+ and will take place in front of the main stage set up on the field of the Jefferson Township High School, 1010 Weldon Road, Oak Ridge, N.J.
At 3:30 p.m., contestants will go head-to-head to see who can eat the most hot dogs in five minutes. Anyone who heaves during the competition will automatically be disqualified. There will be prizes awarded.
There is an entry fee of $5 for contest submission, and all Hot Dog Eating contestants should pre-register by 2:30 pm in the area of the main stage to sign in and fill out a liability form. A parent-signed waiver form will be required for any contestants under the age of 18 who wish to compete.
