Keep your eyes on the pies! The Blueberry Pie-Eating Contest is fun to try, and really fun to watch.
There is a $5 entrance donation with the net proceeds going to the Machias Food Pantry. Sign-up from 8 A.M. to 10 A.M. near church steps.
Contestants are chosen by lottery at 10 A.M. Ten registrants compete in four age groups: 7-10-year-olds, 11-14-year-olds, 15-18-year-olds, and adults.
The Pie-Eating Contest begins at 11 A.M.
Rules are available at registration. Each contestant receives a T-shirt to wear during the contest, and a clean one to take home. Certificates are awarded. Of course, the greatest prize is the bragging rights!
