Greenwood, SC – The award winning South Carolina Festival of Discovery is searching to find South Carolina’s top home grown hot dog eater.
The Festival is partnering with none other than South Carolina’s own Skins Hot Dogs (http://www.skinshotdogs.com). With a dozen locations all over Upstate South Carolina and one in Greenwood, nobody cooks a hot dog like they do! Visit their Greenwood location at 531B ByPass 72 NW in front of REI Greenwood Cinema.
The champion walks away with a $500 prize and the right to claim the name of 2012 Festival of Discovery Hot Dog Eating Champion!
