July 1st is National Hot Dog Month and what better way is there to celebrate than with a Hot Dog Fest? Burger Beast & Food Truck Invasion’s 2nd Annual Hot Dog Fest is back for 2013. This year, the Hot Dog Fest will be in Miami at Tobacco Road (Saturday July 13th 2-7:30PM), Jupiter at Abacoa Town Center (Sunday July 21st from 12-5PM) and Plantation at Plantation Heritage Park (Sunday July 28th from 12-5PM).
Each event will be different from the other with Jupiter for example featuring Odyssey Road (a Journey Tribute Band), Plantation having a Bounce House for the kids and Tobacco Road having a “Sip & Slide” for the adults. The one constant is of course the 2nd annual Hot Dog Eating Contest where the winner will get a Prize Pack from National Deli. And for those in attendance, we will be raffling off a 2 Nights Stay for 2 Adults & 2 Children at Club Med Sandpiper Bay courtesy of Club Med & the Travel Bee, one prize at each event.
The Food Trucks in attendance will be making Specialty Hot Dogs as well serving a limited menu of their regular grub. This year’s events will include some restaurants and other Food Vendors such as Babe Froman (Sausage Queen of Miami) and Novae Gourmet (Handmade All Natural Beef & Chicken Jerky) that vary per event. Please check out the Hot Dog Fest website for individual vendor listings.
Admission is *FREE to attend and food prices will vary per vendor.

Jersey Dawg: Disco Dawg – classic Ripper Dog topped with Disco Fries (Jersey style Fries topped with Cheese and Gravy)
