Corndogorama will be held in the East Atlanta Village this year. Like the name suggests, there will be eating of corn dogs. There will be a Corn Dog eating contest, on Saturday at 6 pm, according to the schedule posted on the website. But don’t be fooled, the festival centers more around Indie Rock music than corn dog eating. Some 50 bands are scheduled to perform over the 2-day period.
Corndogorama also includes oddball events like the tricycle race, the cricket crunch and flip-flop 100 yard dash. Other events include the watermelon toss, the one legged relay race, bobbing for beer plus an artist market. The spotlight event, the Corn dog Eating contest, is sanctioned by the World League of Competitive Eating – www.wloce.com.
