"Bake Your Very Best Heritage Pie" Contest
Is it a cherry or an apple pie? Perhaps a lime or lemon pie? Maybe it’s a peanut butter, chocolate or coconut pie? You just make your very best pie and bring it to be judged as the “Very Best of the Best” to win this Heritage Weekend pie baking contest. Preregistration is not required. Prepare your entry at home and bring it to the Pie Booth at the Hardy County Public Library on Saturday September 24th at 2 pm to show off your best recipe! Amateur bakers of all ages are welcome!
