Pumpkin pie contest returns to Arlington's 'Hometown Halloween'

ARLINGTON — The Legion Park gazebo will once again serve as the site for the annual pumpkin pie contest that's a traditional part of Arlington's "Hometown Halloween."

For more than a decade, bakers have taken out their pans and favorite recipes to bake pumpkin pies, and on Saturday, Oct. 29, contestants will be able to test the fruits of their labors on the town's taste buds from 10-11 a.m.

This contest is open to all ages, with a limit of one pie per entry, all of which must be homemade. Cash prizes will be awarded to the first, second and third place winners.
