Nathan's Famous International Hot Dog Eating Contest takes place July 4, 2014

Contestants from around the globe will take part in the 99th annual Nathan's Famous International Hot Dog Eating Contest.

The goal is pretty simple: The eaters should consume as many hot dogs with buns as they can in ten minutes.

 Last year, Joey "Jaws" Chestnut ate 69 hot dogs to win the contest for his seventh consecutive victory.

On the women's side, three-time champ Sonya "The Black Widow" Thomas hopes to beat her own personal record of 45 hot dogs.

It all happens at New York's Coney Island amusement park
