After 2 years, the popular Whoopie Pie Festival is once again drawing thousands to Dover-Foxcroft

DOVER-FOXCROFT, Maine — It took 10-year-old Grant Lundy just under a minute and 30 seconds to swallow two whoopie pies in the youth eating contest at the Whoopie Pie Festival on Saturday.

It was an impressive performance for the first-time competitor from Bangor, who gulped down whoopie pie between bites and stopped to wipe his face with a napkin before shooting his arm in the air to announce the win.

“It feels very good,” said Lundy, whose grandparents live in Dover-Foxcroft. “Like, very good. At first I didn’t know if I was going to win because I saw a bunch of other empty plates.”
