You can eat one, but can you eat 20 hot dogs or more?
Do you have what it takes to compete against battle-hardened hot-dog consuming pros? You can find out in Kissimmee in May.

Old Town hosts an international hot dog eating contest — a Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest qualifier — later this month. Winners from this event will qualify to compete in  the 2023 Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog-Eating Contest at the iconic flagship restaurant in Coney Island.

The hot dog destruction happens at Old Town on Saturday, located at 5770 W Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway, May 13 at noon. Attendance is free and registration for participants is still open.

Show up hungry and ready to put up a fight for a spot in hot dog history.
