Hot Dog Eating Contest

Hot Dog Eating Contest. The Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest is an annual American competitive-eating competition. It is held each July 4 at Nathan's Famous Corporation, a restaurant at the corner of Surf and Stillwell Avenues in Coney Island, a neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. The event is regarded as the world's most famous hot dog eating contest and a colorful tradition of Independence Day in the United States.

On the ninety-sixth annual contest, Joey Chestnut once again defended his title by consuming 62 hot dogs and buns (HDBs) in ten minutes and Sonya Thomas won the inaugural women's event, eating 40 hot dogs and buns.
