It pays to be stinky

The 14th Annual Odor-Eaters Rotten Sneaker Contest was held at the Imagine Nation on Pleasant Street Saturday. The ‘zany beauty pageant’ seeks out the smelliest sneakers worn by a youth between the ages of 5 and 15. This year’s winner is Parker Hambidge of East Hampton, 7, who won $200 and gets a chance to compete in New York for the national title this spring.
