Apple-Palooza 2011: A Success AND of Course The Pie Winners

The Pies and their Maker's for the 2011 Apple-Palooza Apple Pie Baking Contest at Lapacek's Orchard

Even with the dreary cold, rainy weather we ended up with today – Apple-Palooza 2011 was a success!  People enjoyed the old-fashioned cider pressing demo’s, Shaun of 'Rock N Wool' Acres hearing about Rock n Wool Acres, Hard Cider Talk learning about Hard Apple Cider, Naomi of the Glitter Workshop visiting with The Glitter Workshop and of course, trying out some apple pie once the judging was complete.  Thank you so much to everyone that came out to participate or just watch from the wings!  If it weren’t for our fabulous customers and supporters none of this would be possible.

Looks like a great event! The pies look scrumptious and that huge jug of cider is amazing.
