When summer turns into the crisp days of Autumn, it's time for the annual Apple Pie Festival sponsored by Families Helping Families, the non-profit organization that assists Clinton families with food and funds.
This year, the 6th annual event has a new location: the cafeteria at The Morgan School.
It takes place tonigh! Saturday, October 6th from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.
The event is free to the public, but "admission" is the donation of non-perishable food items and/or cash gifts for fuel assistance.
There's plenty of homemade pie and ice cream for everyone.
Miner Vincent, president of Families Helping Families, said, "This event has evolved in its six years from a modest beginning of 75 people attending to last year's 323."
Many of Clinton's best pie makers are rolling out crust and baking, hoping to come up with the winning pie recipe, added Vincent.
Did we mention there are prizes for best pie?
"This event features some of the best apple pie one can enjoy along the whole shoreline," added Vincent.
The highlight of the festival is the "Best Apple Pie Contest" which will feature some of the best "pie-makers" in the area.
The first prize winner will take home $100, a beautiful crystal apple, and a ribbon. There are also prizes for second and third place. Young "pie-makers" (13 and under) will also receive a prize.
Will she win again?
People submitting pies for judging must have them at the Morgan School at 5:00pm today. For more information call 860-669-5592.
