SAN ANTONIO – Every year on the Fourth of July, the world tunes in to see Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest where typically, Joey Chestnut takes home the prize.
On Saturday, locals will get a chance to experience a portion of the annual event when Nathan's Famous hosts the Texas qualifier at the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo at 2 p.m.
The top male and female finishers from the event will qualify for a seat at the Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest.
