Celebrate our nation’s independence by joining an estimated 40,000 viewers in watching people stuff their faces with franks—reigning champ Joey Chestnut is back in action after winning his sixth contest and tying for the honor of Most Consecutive Wins last year. The flagship location of Nathan’s Famous was hit hard by Sandy and had to close for part of the season, but despite the setback, the company will still make its usual donation of 100,000 hot dogs to the Food Bank for New York City.All ages.
