That's a lot of mushrooms The three top places in the mushroom eating contest in Kennett Square on Saturday went to, from left, Jamie McDonald (five pounds, first place), Eric Dahl (four-and-a-half pounds, third place) and David Brunelli (four-and-a-half pounds, second place). The early afternoon event in the 27th annual Mushroom Festival attracted hundreds of cheering fans to the special events tent. There were 12 contestants in the contest, who had eight minutes to consume as many Buona fried mushrooms as possible in eight minutes. The festival continues on Sunday in the borough until 5 p.m.
