Pie Eating Contest Results

 

pie eating-1A

The crowd loved it so much last year, we brought back the pie eating contest again this year on Saturday, June 25th in the Farm Bureau Free Entertainment Tent. Seventeen kids and six adults entered the contest to see who could eat the most pie in 3 minutes. The crowd enjoyed the contest as much as the contestants did.

We even had some of our Fair Association Members in the adult division including Allison Zumbach, Jennifer Dunn and Heidi Steffen. We had a tie breaker in the adult division, so Allison Zumbach and Heidi Steffen had one more minute to eat as much as they could of the remaining pie to determine the winner.
