Hot dog eating champ Joey Chestnut will take on the Mississippi slugburger on Saturday in Corinth.
   
Main Street Corinth made the announcement over the weekend on its Facebook page.
   
On July 4 at Nathan's Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating contest, Chestnut broke the record he held with Takeru Kobayashi, as each had six total championships heading into last Thursday's event. Chestnut downed 69 hot dogs, another record.
   
Chestnut's closest competition was Matt Stonie with 51 hot dogs.
   
Stonie is the slugburger record holder having downed 30 slugburgers in 10 minutes to become the first World Slugburger Eating champion last year.
   
The 26th Annual Slugburger Festival is Saturday in Corinth. The eating contest is at 4:30 p.m. at the Crossroads Museum.
