Pie contest planned for festival
Can you bake a berry pie? Or an apple pie?
Then you better get ready to enter the community pie contest during the Harvest Festival at North Dam Park, Sept. 13-14.
In fact, Grand Coulee Dam Area Chamber of Commerce Manager Peggy Nevsimal said, “better bake two.”
The plan is that one of the pies (either berry or apple) is for the tasting judges and the other is to auction off.
It’s just like the community or county fair that all have enjoyed. A blue ribbon awaits some local baker whose pie recipe will hit the charts, at least for a day.
Nevsimal said that more details of when and where to submit the pies will be revealed at a later date.
Harvest Festival activities will include hayrides, a petting zoo, chalk art in the park, a costumed pet show, a beer garden for adults, and a community-wide yard sale.
The Rotary Club will help keep everyone fed with its North Dam Park barbecue.
