Twenty restaurants and food trucks competed in the South Street Headhouse District’s third annual Dog Days of Summer Cook-Off, held Saturday under the Shambles at 2nd and Pine Streets. General admission was free for music, crafts, and entertainment, but tasting the dogs and drinks required a ticket.

Judges Marc Summers, Danya Henninger, Carly Szkaradnik, and Philly.com's Michael Klein judged the professional chefs' hot dogs.

Hot Diggity’s Keith Garabedian, Drew Lazor, Josh Middleton, Audra Neff, and Julia West assessed the amateur chefs, which featured a "Philadelphia" theme this year. Lilly Vamberi, the winner of that competition, will have her creation featured for a month on the menu at Hot Diggity.

Funds raised at this event go to support the preservation of the historic Headhouse Square Shambles.
