All about Pie – A Memorial Day experience!

We went to Boalsburg PA for the Memorial day festival on May 25th! I baked 3 different pies, Peach Ginger, Traditional Apple and a French Apple Custard.  Together the Wheeler/Schissel clan entered 13 different pies.  After the judging the pies are sliced and then sold for $2.00 a slice, so if you want to try your pie you better line up!  For more information on the contest  and celebration go here http://memorialdayinboalsburg.org/schedule.php

All our pies lined up starting with my French Apple custard pie!

Not only is there a pie baking contest but there is also a craft fair full of country crafts, caned goods and more refined art.  I came across this potter:

Jeff had the coolest ikebana flower arranging vases I have seen in a while.  I really liked that the little spikes matched the color of the pottery. Nice touch.  His pieces really displayed the flowers and the pottery- it is a nice balance. He has no website but his contact information is avanggardenpa@yahoo.com
