The U.S. Hot Dog Eating Contest, is held every Fourth of July at Coney Island in Brooklyn.
It’s is like the World Cup of competitive eating!
Last year, American Joey Chestnut not only claimed the championship title for the ninth time, but set a new record by finishing 70 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes!
35,000 people are expected to turn out to watch the festivities.
The winner takes home $10,000.00, 2nd place $5,000.00 and 3rd $2500.00.
