How much apple pie can you eat? The public is encouraged to take part in celebrating the quintessential taste of fall and give it a try! There will be two different divisions: Ages 12 & Under and Ages 13 & Up.

Contestants will be competing for $25.00 gift certificates provided by Stop & Shop, who is proud to be a sponsor of this event. Prizes will be awarded to the individuals who eat the most pie in their division. However, the best reward will be a year of bragging rights!
