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. Contestants are chosen by lottery. 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.
