Come celebrate July 4th in style with the NYC Zombie Crawl at the Annual Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating contest on Coney Island! This is a zombie meet-up event in support of our undead hotdog champion, Gravy Brown! There will be no make-up artists so zombies should come in their undead best! The event will be televised on ESPN so everyone should bring signs rooting on Gravy Brown and the NYC Zombie Crawl! When you get to Coney Island, look for the large group of zombies led by me, your zombie ringleader Doug Sakmann! We’ll be organizing the mob no later than 11am.

Ripping apart flesh and ripping apart food go hand in hand. Come show your support at the craziest NYC Zombie Crawl meet up yet. It all happens on Coney Island at Surf and Stillwell at high noon on July 4th, the official home of Nathans Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest. This year 10th ranked competitive eater Gravy Brown will be eating his way to glory on stage and on ESPN in full zombie costume! Show up early and show your zombie support and you could be part of the broadcast!

When: July 4th-  High Noon
This is a huge event with tens of thousands of people to get up front and show your support try and get their early. People start filtering in as early as 9AM.

There will be a Zombie after party and competitive eater meet-up at Ruby’s on the boardwalk (1213 Boardwalk West) after the event too!
