CompetitiveEating.com.au are proud to announce their partnership with Luna Park to officially sanction the 2017 Luna Park Hot Dog Eating Competition.
Scheduled for Saturday 22 July 2017 at 2pm, Australia’s best eaters will battle it out for this prestigious title. Like no other event in Australia, this is one of the pinnacle Competitive Eating events of the year, held at the picturesque Luna Park in Melbourne.
CompetitiveEating.com.au’s president Billy Boyd will be announcing the competition again this year. He describes last year’s event:
What an amazing spectacle last year. It went down to a tiebreaker in front of a huge crowd. Everyone was going nuts! You can’t get more exciting than that, and I expect the competition this year to be just a fierce! Can’t wait to be a part of this year’s competition as well!
With each year getting bigger and better, this year is no exception. First prize is $500 cash for both Male and Female categories. Each category will compete separately. All eaters must be over 18 to enter.
Last year’s battle was extremely close, with the Male category going down to a tiebreaker. What will happen this year? Will Ollie “The Ressler” Ressom defend his title? You’ll have to come down to find out!
This year’s entry application requires a video application for participants. Show us how fast you can eat. Show us how much you want to win the main event. The best entries will be shown closer to the event, and the finalists selected.
Registration closes 13 July. To enter, visit https://lunapark.com.au/event/hot-dog-day/
