Last year, people were not allowed to do gatherings or leave their houses due to the prevailing condition of the global pandemic. No one celebrated independence day openly; people arranged small activities inside the homes to show solidarity with their beloved nation. 

When everything is in much control this year, people are allowed to celebrate their freedom with full enthusiasm. They arranged each and every game and praised it to the fullest.

Nathan’s Hot Dog competition that was usually held outside the best restaurant in Coney Island had shifted to a nearby minor league baseball stadium, Maimonides Park, with 5,000 people. It was arranged there because of coronavirus restriction.
