Fish Tales’ Fourth of July hot dog eating contest back in Ocean City



OCEAN CITY Md.— Who doesn’t think of hot dog eating contests when preparing for the Fourth of July? 

Fish Tales Bar and Grill is bringing the annual dietary competition back this Independence Day at 22nd Street, bayside.

“We are excited to have the most requested event back on our calendar,” owner Shawn Harman said in a press release from the restaurant. “We want to focus on our local community, so contestants must work and live locally.”

Alongside the competitors getting started at noon in the eatery’s south parking lot, seating will be available to watch until about 4 p.m. The event has previously drawn in hundreds.

Fish Tales in Ocean City had its 11th Hot Dog Easing Contest on July 4, 2018. The owner Shawn Harman said, “It was just the American thing to do.” It was attended by over 300 people.

This “amateur” contest is open to anyone who works within a business of Ocean City. The first 20 people to register will lock-in as contestants. Hopefuls can visit the Bahia Marina Tackle Shop or Fish Tales Small Bar to sign up, with a $10 registration fee, according to Fish Tales.
