Saturday was a big day for Troutman area hot dog lovers. They got to watch a display of hot dog eating skill that makes normal folks shudder. The brand new annual Labor Day Festival and Hot Dog Competition held at Ole World Market in Troutman brought out some heavy hitters, but the “top dog” was Will Millender who downed 8 hot dogs and buns in 2 minutes and 10 seconds. Think about that for a minute. That’s eating a complete hot dog with bun every 16.25 seconds- or less if you account for burping time. For his special talent, he received the top prize of $1,000. The proceeds from the event went to the Adam Schweitzer Memorial Fund and the J. Hoyt Hayes Memorial Troutman Library. Also, Ole World Market is now selling used books for the benefit of the library. Go see what’s on the shelves frequently since the stock will be sure to move fast.
