The Taste of Greater Waterville is on August 3rd in downtown with food, fun and music. One of the fun events is the meatball eating contest.

Entry fee is $25 and if you sign up before the Taste will get $5 off. Part of the proceeds from the meatball eating contest will benefit the Waterville Food Pantry.

The idea of the contest is to eat as many meatballs in 5 minutes as you can. The meatballs weigh in at 2 ounces and the winner will receive a championship trophy and a $100 gift certificate.
