We’re getting really excited about I Spy Pie! on Saturday, Oct. 20! Join us from 12-3pm on the deck and the lawn at Central Market North.
Your children can listen and dance to The Biscuit Brothers as well as Jungle Jill and the Jaybirds. They can write their own Peace Pie Poem, create a moving Pie Puppet, compete in the Pie Walk for a chance to win their own pie, make their own Chef’s Hat, decorate an Apron for Baking, and get their faces painted. All of these fun activities are free!
For $5, you’ll receive a tasting ticket so you can taste 10 different pie flavors from Austin’s favorites: Central Market Bakery, Central Market Cooking School, Jeffrey’s, Texas Pie Kitchen, and Tiny Pies. Then you will get the chance to vote and help determine the winner.
Purchase a raffle ticket for your chance to will any one of three fabulous prizes:
Grand prize – 2, 3-day wristbands for Austin City Limits (ACL) 2013
2nd prize – 2, 3-day wristbands for Fun Fun Fun Fest 2012
3rd prize – Central Market gift basket and gift card to Trace at W Austin
Hope to see you on Saturday!
My favorite pie is a difficult choice because I like so many of them! It’s a tie between apple pie a la mode and pumpkin pie a la whipped cream. Fun fact: The Long Wharf Theatre, where I worked in Connecticut many years ago, held an annual pie competition. I entered with a homemade chocolate pie with oreo crust, topped with chocolate shavings in the shape of the symbol “pi.” I lost the contest, but the next year I was selected to judge. Being a judge was much tastier.
