Marvel at the copious quantities of shellfish consumption by firefighters from Baldwin, East Rockaway, Island Park, Lakeview, Long Beach and Point Lookout as they compete to win funds for their firehouses still in need of repairs and /or equipment replacements in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. World competitive eating champion Takeru Kobayashi will be on hand todemonstrate his awe-inspiring ingestion skills. And members of the public can test their clam eating mettle for cash prizes during a separate competition at 2:30 p.m. No charge to watch either spectacle and firefighters compete for free. But there is a $20 entry fee for the public contest.
