COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) Some of WCBI’s reporters gave in to their sweet tooth on Saturday at the Market Street Festival ice cream eating contest.
R.H. Brown came in as a 3-time champion but was ultimately defeated by firefighter Shannon Murphy. Teams consisted of one local celebrity and a young girl and boy. Competitors were given 3 minutes to eat as much ice cream as they could. The kids on the winning team won a new bike. Heather Black and Tommy Lopez also competed but came just short of winning the bikes for their team.
