LEXINGTON, Va. (WDBJ7) Volunteers got together Wednesday morning and rapidly peeled, cut and cored six bushels of apples for the Pie Festival. All those apples will be converted into 20 classic apple pies and 60 apple crumble pies, just two of the 15 kinds of pies that will be offered either whole or by the slice during the day-long event at the municipal pool.
There will also be a pie contest, Olympic-themed water events for the kids, and pork barbeque.
“It’s a true festival. And the purpose of it is all about the children in Rockbridge County – it’s not just Lexington – to make sure that they have water safety training and that they know how to swim. So the money goes back into the community," Pie Festival Publicity Chair Sara Vasura said.
The festival is Saturday at the Lexington Municipal Pool. And if you want to pre-order a pie, you can do that on their website, RockbridgePieFestival.org.
