If you're anything like us, you'll be busy grilling and sipping on red, white and blue sangria this July 4 -- but if you don't want to miss watching competitors eat as many hot dogs as they can in 10 minutes in the annual Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest, we've got you covered with all the details.
(It takes place every single year, but it just never gets old -- are we right?)
So, here's what time you and your friends should prepare to gather around the TV (or device!) to see who will take home the coveted Mustard Belt. (The reigning champion ate a whopping 72 hot dogs last year!)
Time: 10:50 a.m. ET
Time: 12:00 p.m. ET
You can also stream the competition on WatchESPN!
