I loved my late morning jaunt to the Boalsburg Memorial Day Pie Contest. It’s a tradition for my husband and me to arrive early to this nearby little town, enjoy all the banter about the pies, talk to the residents of Boalsburg, and lounge on the cool grass while we listen to the high school jazz band and then the Little German Band. We buy hot dogs from the Boy Scouts, and then we watch the Maypole Dance in the center of town.
But mostly, we enjoy the pie.
(The Apple Rum Raisin won first prize followed by the Lemon Sponge in second. The Blueberry Banana won third. We personally enjoyed the Pineapple Pecan, the Lime Coconut, and the Strawberry.)
