Let's start a tradition!

Pie baking Around Winter Haven is serious business.  Community members gather together on November 26, 2022  to compete for fame, glory and bragging rites. (The rest of us just show up to eat pie!) Don’t miss this old fashioned community event.

Bake a pie and WIN!!

If you are up for a bit of friendly competition with your neighbors, bring two of your finest pie creations to La’s Midway Saloon and offer them up to the pie judges. (Judges do not accept bribes or cream pies!)
