BRADENTON, Fla. -- The most popular manatee on the Suncoast is getting ready to celebrate a big birthday. Snooty is turning 66 years old!

To celebrate, the South Florida Museum in Bradenton held a "Snooty lettuce-eating contest" Tuesday morning. Five local human competitors tried their best to eat more lettuce than Snooty.

They were judged on style, quality and personality.

And this Saturday, you and your family can join the fun at Snooty's 66th Birthday Bash, Arts and Wildlife Awareness Festival.

It will be at the South Florida Museum from 10am until 2pm. There'll be all types of family-friendly games, entertainment and food vendors.
