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 Timmy the balloon twister and Annie the face painter from 1 to 4 p.m. The newest addition, Express Your Sole! sponsored by Maui Nix, features a local artist who will customize your new canvas shoes between 1 and 7 p.m. Limited supply so come early!
The annual hot dog eating contest is always a crowd favorite, and will take place in the Courtyard at 4 p.m. This year’s contest is sponsored by Paragon Grove 13 and Maui Nix. 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.
Then the night only gets hotter when South Florida’s popular Sans of Tyme delivers Classic Rock from 7 to 11 p.m. Come Rock the Walk and watch the 9 o’clock fireworks in Peacock Park from any of our spacious outdoor balconies. Check CocoWalk.net for more details and updates.
