Hamburg, PA (PRWEB) July 23, 2012
In what has quickly become one of the most talked about Competitive Eating Championships throughout the East Coast, The Taste of Hamburg-er Festival National Hamburger Eating Championship Presented by Red Robin will crown the National Hamburger Eating Champion on September 1, 2012. The Eating Championship, being held at the 9th Annual event in Hamburg, Pennsylvania, will be officially sanctioned by the World’s most recognized Independent Competitive Eating organization - All Pro Eating (http://competitiveeaters.com/index.html). The event includes a $1,600.00 prize pool and the winners will be awarded trophies and medals to acknowledge their place in the festive sport of Competitive Eating.
Deena Kershner, Taste of Hamburg-er Festival (http://tasteofhamburger.com/) organizer boasts how the festival has grown over the last nine years to include this National event. “The eating competition will top off all of the other activities that will be happening throughout the day. We offer 3 stages of non-stop entertainment, kids activities, a beer and wine garden and a few other burger contests, but nothing comes close to the excitement of hosting the national competition”
“Hamburg, Pennsylvania celebrates one of the most iconic all-American food items every year and the time has come to dedicate this hallowed ground as the location where the 2012 National Hamburger Eating Champion is crowned!” said Todd Greenwald, Chairman of All Pro Eating. “The winner of The Taste of Hamburg-er Festival National Hamburger Eating Championship Presented by Red Robin not only leaves with the delicious taste of Red Robin Gourmet Hamburgers lingering in their mouth but also knowing that they have what it takes to carry on the fanfare and pageantry of this grand title into 2013!”
