LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 23, 2016) — The Great American Pie contest will be held at noon on July 1, at the Fifth Third Bank Pavilion in Cheapside Park in Lexington. The deadline to apply for the contest is June 29.
Awards will be presented in two categories — made from scratch and semi-homemade. Awards will include first, second and third place in each category. Additionally, a special award of “prettiest pie” will also be presented.
Applications, as well as additional information, are available on the Downtown Lexington Corporation’s website at downtownlex.com.
After the judging, slices of pie, along with Chaney’s Dairy Barn ice cream, will be available for free at the Ice Cream Social hosted by Alltech. This event, held in conjunction with the pie contest, starts at noon and will last until both the pie and ice cream are gone.
Other activities for the Fourth of July Festival presented by Fifth Third Bank include the Central Bank Thursday Night Live, Friday Night Live, a patriotic music concert, Bluegrass 10,000, street festival, parade and fireworks.
