Competitive Eater Coming to Owensboro

One of western Kentucky's biggest festivals is getting a visit from one of the most famous competitive eaters.

Owensboro city officials say Joey Chestnut will appear at a mutton slider eating contest during the International Barbecue Festival this May.

He's one of 12 people set to compete in the contest.

Chestnut has won the Nathan's famous Fourth of July hot dog eating contest nine times in the past decade.

The contest takes place on May 13 at McConnell plaza.
