Junior Crawfish Eating Contest

Pinch A Palooza Junior Crawfish Eating Contest

Our second-annual Pinch A Palooza Junior Crawfish Eating Contest gives kids the chance to experience the challenge of competitive eating. Children ages 6 through 12 can register to compete for the title of Deanie’s Pinch A Palooza 2018 Junior Crawfish Eating Champ. Participants can register the day of the event at Deanie’s Seafood in Bucktown.

Our contest starts at 1 p.m. and is limited to 12 participants. Each participant is a winner – a keepsake Pinch A Palooza T-shirt is provided with each contestant’s $5 registration fee.

Each contestant will be presented with 3 lbs. of boiled Louisiana crawfish, with the championship awarded to the person who eats the most crawfish in five minutes.

Our Pinch A Palooza Junior Crawfish Eating Contest Champion will receive a year of Free Kids Meals at Deanie’s (maximum 2 per month, dine-in only) and a Lil’ Bit Crawfish Boil Set.

Sign up the day of the festival between noon and 1 p.m. Entry fee of $5 will be paid and includes a Pinch A Palooza 2018 T-shirt.  Each participant must complete a waiver signed by a parent or guardian. Contest starts promptly at 1 p.m.
