DETROIT- It was the ultimate hot dog celebration in Detroit as the American Coney Island Restaurant celebrated their 95th anniversary. They teamed up with a local radio station to drop 955 hot dogs onto a soccer field.

People on the ground were ready to scoop them up. The person who collected the most dogs won $1,000 and a lifetime supply of Coneys.

After the contest, the Frankfurters were donated to a dog rescue shelter.
