With the fest kicking off tomorrow night.
there is still a lot of baking to be done.
Volunteers from Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in
La Crescent will be baking 5-hundred apple pies for
the big day.
They spent the day in the church's kitchen setting-up
everything they need for the baking process.
With more that 4-hundred-50 pies already ordered.
they aren't taking any chances when the time comes
to start putting the pies in the oven.
Well we try to get as much done as we can today
like setting up getting out our pans, our pairing
knives our peelers getting our sugar, flour cinnamon
mixed up and another group will be here this evening
to put the ice water in and roll it out.
Some of volunteers have been making pies for the festival
for almost 40 years.
