Attendees at the 34th Annual Ham & Yam Festival will eat like a pig for a chance to win $100 Downtown Smithfield Dollars and bragging rights in the festival’s Sweet Potato Pie Eating Contest.  Scheduled for 1:45 p.m. on Saturday, May 5, the contest will be held at the Second Street stage.  Ten participants will compete to be the fastest person to eat their sweet potato pie without using their hands.  


Participants will be selected through a contest on the Ham & Yam Festival’s Facebook page starting April 16.  Rules and a waiver for the sweet potato pie eating contest are available here.
