Camp Washington Chili Coney Eating Contest 2013
June 14, 2013 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Outside of Texas, Cincinnati is the most chili-crazed city in the United States, with more chili parlors per capita and per square mile than any other city in the country. According to the Cincinnati USA Convention & Visitors Bureau, Cincinnatians consume more than 2 million pounds of chili each year, topped with 850,000 pounds of shredded cheese. No wonder so many people sign up for this contest!
In the contest, twelve people compete against each other in a timed event. The object is to eat as many cheese coneys as possible in three minutes.
