NOW: Milwaukee’s kickoff to St. Patrick’s Day parade starts with corned beef eating contest


It's not Saint Patrick's Day without corned beef sandwiches!

Six contestants battled on Friday to find out who could eat a tray of corned beef sandwiches the fastest.

The contest was another part of Milwaukee's kickoff to the St. Patrick's Day Parade.

The winner said his trick was drinking the juice from the sandwich.

"You dunk it, it goes down a little easier. Then when I found out it was a speed contest, I knew I could use the rue so I was drinking fast," the winner said.

The winner took home a trophy, a gift basket from Rock Bottom, a dinner at the Wisconsin Club and tickets to a Milwaukee Wave game.
