Winners of this year’s pie eating contest at RIVERfair were, left to right: Hannah Martin, Zach Milstead and Chris Stahl. Martin and Milstead competed in the 13-and-under boys and girls divisions, Stahl in the adult division. Milstead said his secret to success was to “shove your face into the pie. You want more pie on your face than in your mouth.” As for Stahl, the defending champion made it two-for-two. The annual event was sponsored by Roth’s Family Fresh Markets. The youngsters dived into cherry pies while the adults were treated to marionberry pies.
