The final Kids Eat Free number in 2009 was 71,988, which translates into a cool 7.95 miles worth of hot dogs given out as part of the one-of-a-kind program. Let’s play around with numbers…
- 7.95 miles is: 24 laps around the FirstEnergy Park concourse
- 7.95 miles is: 3 laps of the Constitutional Walking Tour of Philadelphia historic sites
- 7.95 miles is: 4 trips across Midtown Manhattan
- 7.95 miles is: 29 trips from bottom to top of the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower)
A personal favorite…if Joey Chestnut, who won the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest this year, ate hit dogs at the same rate he did that day (68 in 10 minutes), it would take him 7 days, 8 hours, and 26 minutes to reach 71,988.
Thanks to NJ 101.5 and ShopRite for their support with this program!
