PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (CBS) — The third annual “Dog Days of Summer” hot dog competition takes place on Saturday, July 19th.
Keith Garabedian, owner of Hot Diggity and one of the organizers of this event, says it will take place underneath the Shambles at Headhouse Square, just off Second and South Streets.
Garabedian says 20 chefs are competing for the champion’s trophy.
“They all come together and they all present their vision of what a hot dog could be; like, everybody has their own style and you can imprint the attitude of a city on a hot dog. So each hot dog kind of tells its own story, which is cool. And so the chefs are able to tell their story too, through a hot dog.”
And all money raised will be donated to preservation of the Headhouse Shambles.
