This Friday, during the Dog Days of Summer, Fort Worth’s home of Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs is holding The fourth annual local version of the Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating competition will heat up at Curly’s Frozen Custard at 4017 Camp Bowie Blvd.


Three-time champ Chris Sisco will attempt to take a bite out of the record books and earn his fourth on the Fourth. Last year Sisco set a new record time of 2:38 for four Nathan’s Hot Dogs.
“The fun begins with registration starting at 10:00, as we start serving free samples of our Signature Parker County Peach frozen custard. Then, at 11:00 a.m., we will learn if our three-peat champion Chris Sisco can make it four,” says Bourke Harvey, managing partner of Curly’s. “I hear he’s been training to defend his title - He better be as he only won by a second or two last year, and I am sure the competition will turn it up a notch this year.”
Competitors are vying for Four (4) front row tickets to a Texas Rangers baseball game, directly behind the Rangers’ dugout, plus coupons good for two of the giant 26-inch Boom-stick Hot Dogs at the game.
The winner will be determined by how fast he (or she) eats four full sized Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs. With 20 contestants last year, Curly’s had five heats of four, and the best overall time won was declared the Champion! There will also be a youth division (14 and Under) where the contestants see who can down two full sized Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs the fastest.


Contestants may register online at www.facebook.com/curlysfrozencustard, in person, or by calling 817-763-8700.
