Today is officially the first day of summer and the Fourth of July is the most important part of an American Summer. We always find something fun to do from a day at the pool to outdoor concerts to fireworks and more. There is never a lack of things to do the week of the 4th.
This year we are so excited to be participating in a hot dog eating contest as a family. Rob’s Rocking Dogs is having a watermelon and hot dog eating contest to benefitting the Northshore Families Helping Families.
Our family LOVES Rob’s Rocking Dogs so when they asked us to participate we all said YES! Immediately. They are a good, quick place for a family to eat and they always greet us with a smile. I told the boys that I was writing this post and they said that we should all tell you what our favorite hot dogs are so here you go!
Justin: The Zydeco // Alligator sausage topped with pepper jack cheese, red hot grilled onions, cajun mustard and ranch dressing. Except he always holds the ranch and mustard.
Me: The Alternative // Bacon wrapped all beef black angus hot dog topped with grilled onions, cream cheese, spicy brown mustard and grilled jalapenos.
Peyton: The Classic Dog // Ketchup and Ranch Dressing
Paxton: All Access Pass // Beer Cheese, Tater Tots and Dill Pickle
Porter: That’s Amore // This black angus dog comes topped with pizza sauce, shredded mozzarella cheese, pepperoni and oregano.
The event will be hosted in Bogue Flaya Park starting with the kids watermelon eating contest at 6:30, hot dogs at 7:00 and then Fireworks by Sparks in the Park at 8:45. This really is going to be an event for the entire family and we would love to have you join us.
