Pie-eating Contest, Half Moon Bay
Here’s how it works. $5 gets you onto the contestants table. Each competitor gets a pumpkin pie with whipped cream on top. With your hands behind your back you have to eat as much of the pie as possible in the allotted time. The winner is voted for by the audience. Prizes also for messiest face.
I was tempted to take part, but the camp site that night didn’t have showers, and though thought of smelling of pumpkin pie for the next 24 hours wasn’t very appealing.
