Winner of sausage dog eating contest crowned

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Folks were getting into fall spirit Saturday at the 28th Annual Oktoberfest on River Street.

Roger Wood Food's annual sausage dog eating contest was just one of many festivities. Anyone could sign up but only 10 people were picked to compete.

Arthur Pruitt took home the title.

"I just ate 17 sausages. I beat the 2nd place guy and last year's reigning champion," said Pruitt. "It feels pretty good. I got $200 and a little certificate."

Cash prizes were handed out for the top three eaters.
