Great music, and fun games at our annual Independence Day celebration at the market last week- thanks so much for participating in all that we offered you!
The Apple Pie competition ("Clash of the Pie Tins") on the 3rd resulted in a new Pie Champion- Patty Justice. We hope to post a photo of her winning pie soon.
The Cherry Pit Spitting Competition is another annual event, this year sponsored by Summer's End Farm, and we had some great contenders. We had an unconfirmed report of a 32 footer this year and a number of 25 foot and over efforts! So much fun, so simple, and so entertaining! Thank you to everyone who competed! It is always an enjoyable time.
Water balloon toss games, bean bag toss, Blacksmith demos, Live Music (Thank you to Phil Hanson and his Mandolin Quartet!)- all added to the festivities. Remember to make this event part of your annual Independence Day celebration.
Special thanks to the City of Orting for being the lead sponsor and to Pierce County for their sponsorship as well. We can't have a market without the support of sponsors, and we truly appreciate them!
