Hone your sweet tooth with cupcake-eating contest July 4

The Fourth Annual Cupcake Eating Contest will be held July 4 at Croissants Bistro and Bakery, 3751 Robert M. Grissom Parkway in Myrtle Beach.

The free event kicks off at 2 p.m., with the main event at 4 p.m. Those 18 and older can “have their cake and eat it, too” during this cupcake-eating marathon, where contestants will have 5 minutes to eat as many iced cupcakes as they can. Last year’s champion finished 24 cupcakes.

Entertainment will include pony rides, face painting, cupcake decorating and live music. Former Major League Baseball star Reggie Sanders also will be sitting atop a dunk tank to raise money for the Reggie Sanders Foundation.
