Omaha Corn Eating Contest
September 22, 2013 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm CDT
The Annual Corn Eating Contest. You’ve got to see it to believe it. A ravenous spectacle, indeed, but not without a touch of beauty, class and finesse. Past champions include Peter Loggins (who ended up with more in his lap than in his stomach), Andrew Thigpen (the cheerful MC was visibly demoralized even in the glow of victory), and Bill Butler (who went to the emergency room straight away after puking up some blood- no worries, he came out fine). Event DJ Reuben Brown, while not the champion, was a winner in our eyes for DJing while scarfing. Five years ago, local dancers and married couple the so-named Cornstalkers took the top two spots, and last year the winner was Omaha Jitterbugs co-founder, Billy Sobczyk.
It’s anybody’s game. Two categories: BABY TEETH category for competitors 12 and under, and CHOMPERS category for individuals 13 and over. Beginning at 5pm. Free admission! Free contest entry! Register Today:
