Joey Chestnut Wins It Again at Coney Island Hot Dog Eating Contest 2017

Joey Chestnut wins 2017 Coney Island Hot Dog Eating Contest
For the tenth time, Joey Chestnut wins the Coney Island Hot Dog Eating Contest taking in 72 wieners at this year's hot dog eating contest sponsored by Nathan's Famous.  Chestnut stuffed down eight less dogs and buns that he intended to.  His goal was 80.  Chestnut "Jaws" ate two more than last year, beating his record and the most hot dogs and buns eaten at the hot dog eating contest in Coney Island. 

Carmen Cincotti came in second with a walloping 62 hot dogs and buns, and Matt "Megatoad" Stonie lagged behind in third with 48 dogs and buns.

Ten years ago Takeru Kobayashi was the reining champ being the six time winner of Coney Island's annual 4th of July Hot Dog eating contest.  A Coney Island traditional still going strong which draws huge crowds to the area.

Happy 4th of July from Kinetic Carnival

It's been three years since Kinetic Carnival has stopped posting.  In 2012 Kinetic Carnival began to slow down.  There have been a few attempts to restart this blog.  And those attempts have not been terminated completely.  Once again, in the works, is a new verve to start Kinetic Carnival up again along with an audio podcast.  The new proposed Kinetic Carnival will feature the cutting edge and future of world wide attraction based entertainment in this new age of technological advancements as well as throwbacks to the celebrated past while keeping a focus on its Coney Island roots.  We are expecting to announce these new ventures this year.  In the meantime, have an exciting summer!
