From the Orlando Sentinel....
Celebration, Florida, a Disney-built community, will become the Pie Capital of the World April 9 and 10 when thousands of pie lovers, tasters and bakers gather together the Great American Pie Festival sponsored by Crisco. The highlight, as always, will be the Never-Ending Pie Buffet, featuring ice cream and toppings as well.
This year, pie lovers from across the country will be treated to sweet offerings by Bakers Square Restaurants and Pies, Bonert's Slice of Pie, California Raisin Marketing Board, J. Horner's Desserts, Kroger's Private Selection, Publix Super Markets, Inc., Rocky Mountain Pies, Smucker's Toppings, The Folger Coffee Company, Village Inn and Wick's Pies.
Children can make their own pies at the Crisco Kids Creation Station. And there will be pie decorating, "pie-scaping," pie tin art and more family-friendly pie activities. The Pietopia Demonstration Stage, which is sponsored by Village Inn and Bakers Square Restaurants, will include entertainment and baking demonstration by chefs.
All events will fan out near Celebration's Lakeside Park. The festivities are from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. April 9 and noon-5 p.m. April 10. The festival is free. The only paid thing is the Never Ending Pie Buffet, which costs $10 for adults and $5 for children under 12 and seniors over 65.
