And for the second year in a row, Dogtown hotdogs won first place in Middletown Main Street's Lamp Post Decorating Contest.

Thirty businesses competed in the contest, which is in its second year.

The community, giving Dogtown the win for the second time, cast about 600 votes overall.

Young's BBQ placed second and Femme Fatale Boutique placed third.

The friendly competition created a festive atmosphere for downtown shopping and dining during the holiday season, said program director Tracy Skrobot.

Lampposts along both sides of Main Street in downtown Middletown were uniquely decorated by local businesses to help get the town in the holiday spirit.

Voting began Nov. 17 and ended Dec. 17.
