Bring your hunger to the Cowpie Eating Contest, held during the Sunday, July 3, pre-Fourth celebrations in Carnation.

Different age groups can test their stomach-stretching skills, devouring the Cowpie from Lazy K's Pizza and Pasta in Carnation—a warm cookie the size of a small plate, and a popular dessert item at the restaurant.

"It's like three cookies put in one," said Daniel, a cook at Lazy K's. He happens to eat them about once a week, so he knows it's good.

The contest starts at 5:30 p.m. at Tolt Commons Park.

Younger children will race to see who can eat one the fastest; Older entrants compete to see how many they can devour in few minutes.

The winner gets one Cowpie a week from Lazy K's for a year. Every participant gets a coupon for a free giant cookie.

"I wanted to do something for the community that could be the beginning of a new tradition," said Lazy K's owner Kirsten Burt.

All proceeds from the $10 entry fee go to the Carnation Fourth of July Committee to help continue the celebration.

Participants can sign up the afternoon of the event, or during business hours at Lazy K's on the days prior to the festival.
