Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest is back and with a crowd on the Fourth of July.
Last year's contest was held privately due to the pandemic. It will be held this year at Maimonides Park at 11 a.m.
Major League Eating says the event will be free, but you must get tickets beforehand. The league says it will be following current COVID-19 guidelines.
Joey Chestnut set a world record last year in the men's competition, eating 75 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes.
Miki Sudo broke the women's record last year and took first place with 48.5 hot dogs and buns.
