CREEDMOOR — The Creedmoor Lions Club hosted its annual “all you can eat hot dogs and watermelon” lunch on July 4, followed by a cake-baking competition at Lake Rogers Lake in Creedmoor.

Several hundred locals came out to enjoy a day at Lake Rogers Lake listening to the Flatbed Bluegrass Band, socializing with family and friends, and feasting on all the hot dogs and watermelon they could eat.

Following lunch, a cake judging contest took place with submissions by Summer Jackson, Pam Isley and Kim Perry. Jackson submitted an All-American cake with vanilla frosting tinted with red food coloring and topped with blue sprinkles. Isley submitted an “off-the-chart” traditional three-layered pineapple cake. Perry turned in a “State Fair” bunt pan pound cake drizzled with red, white and blue icing.

Following the cake judging competition by Creedmoor Lions Club members Lynwood Hicks and Mike Turner, $50 in prize money was presented to both Jackson and Isley for a first-place tie in the competition. The awaiting crown crowd congratulated both winners and descended on the cakes, devouring them in short order.
