[NYC Culture] July 4th Hot Dog Eating Contest Kobashi vs Chestnut

Hi everyone, hope your studies are doing well.


Today I will be writing an article about America’s Independence Day(July 4th).


The history of Independence Day goes back to the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776 from Great Britain.


” Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunion, and political speeches and ceremonies, in addition to various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States. ” – wikipedia


I will be covering the annual Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating contest here in Coney Island.  Takeru Kobayashi nicknamed the Tsunami was the official Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest Winner from 2001-2006 until Joey Chestnut came and took over since 2007-now.  Kobayashi has not participated since 2009 due to a contract dispute.




However he has an unofficial hot dog eating contest at the Eventi Hotel( 851 6th Avenue, New York, NY) this year.

でも、今日小林伊はNathanのエベントと同じ時Eventi Hotel で早食い選手権があった。
