NCF 2013: It's Not The National Cherry Festival Without Some Cherry Pie Eating Contests

Posted: Updated:

The National Cherry Festival wouldn't live up to its namesake without a good, old fashioned, cherry pie eating contest.

Every day this week, children ages 3 - 12 can dive in, and hope to devour a pie first in their age group.

It's a finger-licking good time for the kids, and great photo-opp for mom and dad.

The kids' cherry pie eating contest is everyday at 1:00 at F&M Park.
