The Taste of Folly Beach 2010 was a great time with a great turnout. The streets were full of fans of Folly and their energy beat back the overcast skies, and warmed up the lower temperatures. The sun made an appearance here and there, which was a welcome sight for the many participating Folly establishments.The chili cookoff sponsored by Planet Follywood was extra competitive this year with over 30 entries. The awards were given out as follows:
1st place Ryan Galloway
2nd place Chef Aaron from Locklears
3rd place Chef Jonathan from Blu
Honorable mention Nick the kid
Brian Hawkins from the Folly Beach Crabshack won the server olympics, the finals featuread a photo finish with Brian winning by holding more beverage in his two cups.
The hot dog eating contest was entertaining. The winner ate 6 hot dogs, and there were images that conjured up memories of “Stand By Me”.
The tunes were provided by the Hawkes. Some of the largest crowds were in front of the stage dancing and swinging to the music.As usual when Center Street closes, a good time was had by all. Make sure and come out next year!
