2017 Pie Bake Off
It's that festive time of year where families gather around to enjoy good company, hearty food, and most importantly, pie! Do you have what it takes to rise to the occasion? Don't be afraid to take whisks. Join us 10:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 4 at the Millhouse at Philip S. Miller Park for the Town's inaugural pie baking competition.
The pie bake off is open to all bakers. There will be two categories for judging: fruit and non-fruit pies. Pies will be assessed based on appearance, crust, filling and overall flavor and taste.
