In the Twede’s cherry pie-eating competition, hungry competitors attempt to eat as many pies as possible in five minutes. Entrants will be divided into two age groups; age 5 to 12, and 13 and above. Those interested in competing are encouraged to register at 1 p.m. at the information booth on Saturday.

Blueberries galore

The Burstin’ with Blueberries dessert contest challenges cooks to come up with creative recipes.

First, second and third prize winners will each receive a trophy. The top contestant will also take home $25 cash and five pounds of blueberries from Bybee-Nims Blueberry Farm.

Those interested in entering one of their original creations can register at the information booth at 11:45 a.m. Judging begins at 12:30 p.m. and the winners will be announced at 1:15 p.m.
