Rolling Fatties Fatty Eating Contest Oct. 10

Four time champ John Winter.

KINGFIELD - Generally things are pretty chill here at the restaurant in downtown Kingfield. In this fall episode of the Rolling Fatties Fatty Eating Contest on Oct. 10 at 5 p.m., the atmosphere could take on more of a UFC cage match feel as hungry challengers throw down with four time undefeated/undisputed champ, John Winter. Sound silly? This is serious.

The gist: Eat three classic fatties in heats as fast as you can. The best combined time wins prizes from True Mountain Maple Syrup in Industry and Boothbay Craft Brewing in Boothbay, this season’s sponsors for the event. The entry fee is $10 per person which will be matched by both sponsors and donated to the Greater Franklin Food Council.
