Prepare for Pie Festivities

by Chelsea Gilman, Business Manager

We’re busy at Theatre Action Project (TAP) planning our 4th Annual Family Fun Day at Central Market.

I SPY PIE! is the latest spectacle of delicious treats and arts brought to Central Market North by Theatre Action Project and HEB. Five local pastry chefs will compete for top honors, and families will be entertained and delighted by live music, arts and crafts projects and of course, PIE… all in support of TAP programs to nurture creative artists, confident leaders, critical thinkers and courageous allies.

Current participating Bakeries include:

The Celebrity Judges are:

Live Music includes: the Biscuit Brothers.  Family activities include: games, crafts, face painting, and more.  Pie-tasting tickets will be $5, and you’ll have the opportunity to taste all the pies, as well as vote for your favorite.  We can’t wait to see you on Saturday, Oct. 20 at Central Market North from 12-3pm.

P.S. My favorite first day of school memory was in 2nd grade.  A new student came to our school, and I was chosen to be her guide around the school for the day.  I enjoyed showing someone around and we became fast friends.  In fact, we’re still friends to this day!
