A LITTLE BIT OF WHIMSEY AS PIES GO ON PARADE
Rockland, Maine, dubbed “Pie Town USA” by the Food Network when Bobby Flay visited for a pie throwdown, is gearing up for the annual pie-a-thon to celebrate National Pie Day.
The whole town will go pie-crazy on Sunday, January 24 when the Historic Inns of Rockland are joined by businesses and restaurants to welcome hungry pie eaters to the town for the 6th Annual Pies on Parade Inn to Inn Pie Tour. The pies on parade will feature savory, sweet and, fear not for weight loss resolutions, healthy pies too.
Along with a wonderful collection of recipes to take home and samples of more than 35 different pies at restaurants and inns throughout Rockland, the inns will offer tours of common areas and some guest rooms. Tickets for the Pies on Parade Inn-to-Inn Tour are $25 for adults and $10 for children ten and under. Tickets sell out quickly, are available from participating inns only (not additional participating Rockland businesses), and include a keepsake recipe collection and plenty of pie to sample. To order tickets in advance, call 1-877-ROC-INNS (877-762-4667).
All proceeds will remain in Rockland to provide food and heating assistance for Midcoast Maine families through the Area Interfaith Outreach Food Pantry.
Why go home pie-eyed at the end of the event? The Historic Inns of Rockland – a collection of four gracious inns: LimeRock Inn, Granite Inn, Berry Manor Inn and Captain Lindsey House – have created Pie Tour weekend package which requires no designated pie tour driver.
