On June 22nd you can participate in or watch the most Minnesotan eating competition ever: the Wild Rice Hotdish Eating Championship. It's being hosted by Major League Eating (MLE) and it's happening in Tower, MN at the Fortune Bay Casino.

Maybe you made the connection, MLE are the people who host the annual hot dog eating competition in New York. Yeah, those guys, so this is the big time!

There's a total of $5,000 in prizes on the line with the first place winner receiving $2,500. 2nd place gets $1,200, 3rd place - $650, 4th - $350, 5th - $200, and 6th - $100.

If you're interested in participating there are a few things you need to know like you have to be 18 or older and MLE says on their website you must "fully acknowledge and understand the inherent dangers and risks associated with participating in an eating contest."

Registration opens at noon on April 16th. When registration opens you can register HERE!
