America’s favorite sandwich, the hamburger, will once again have its very own festival at Lock 3 in Akron. This 8th annual festival will feature music from Zach and the Bright Lights and Separate Ways The Band: The Ultimate Tribute To The Music as well as contests like bobbing for burgers. Today at 6:30 p.m., the hamburger eating contest takes place. It's one of the festival's main highlights as competitive eaters from around the country converge to see who can down the most burgers. Tomorrow, reps from the Akron police and fire departments square off in a hamburger eating contest at 2 p.m. Festival hours are noon to 11 p.m. today and noon to 7 p.m. tomorrow. Tickets are $5.
