PUTTING AWAY THE PIE

Photo by Ted Yoakum4-H shows, concerts and the demolition derby weren’t the only traditions that continued during the La Porte County Fair last week. On Thursday, Pioneer Land hosted its annual pie eating contest, in which nearly a dozen fairgoers raced to be the first to finish an entire pie without using their hands. Emerging victorious was Kenny Parish of Michigan City’s Kenny Parish, who had to wash his face before accepting the $25 first prize. More photos on Page A2.
