Tonight is the pie-eating contest at the Orleans County 4-H Fair, and it has proven to be a glorious messy affair. Nick Wright, 11, of Holley is all smiles after plunging face first into a raspberry pie.

The pie-eating contest draws a big crowd to the Curtis Pavilion. Brown’s Berry Patch of Waterport donates the pies for the event.
