The race team did a fantastic job–the kids from Alhambra HS were fantastic, the cheering, the signs! It was really great–I’ve lived here for over 25 years and loved walking as  a senior in the 5 K Pumpkin walk! Please pass this comment along to the Mayor too. You all did a wonderful job!!! Let’s have the race be an Annual!”

May I bring whipped cream or Cool Whip to be eaten with my pie? You may only bring it and use it if it’s home made. NO OUTSIDE store brand names may be used. Everything must be “home made” and original. If you bring whipped cream, it must be home made and NOT from a can or container.

Do I have to be present? Yes. We want the contestants to be there with their pie representing their amazing tastes and sweetness! See you there.

How do I dress? It’s a 5K run, so come comfortable and look great! Remember, if you win, your photo will be in the newspaper and look the way you’d like to look for that photo 🙂

Where do I go once I’m at the park? Please go to the Pumpkin Pie Bake-Off tent located where the other vendors and health fair are. We will be on the South/West side of the park by The Bandshell stage. We’ll be in a white tent and the sign will say “Pumpkin Pie Bake-Off”. Please give yourself plenty of time to find us.

Who can come to the competition? Is it free to attend? Anyone and everyone are invited. All ages. Yes! It’s a free event.

Pumpkin Pie Bake-Off: When your pie is collected by one of the Judges Assistants, it will be numbered with your contestant number, and then placed on the table and given a judging number beginning at 8:30am. This will assure that none of the Judges know who made each pie and assures that it is a double-blind contest. A panel of judges will judge your pie on aroma, consistency, sweetness, color, taste, and after taste.

Please note the following CRITICAL guidelines for county requirements: Keep your pie in ice so it stays at 41 degrees or cooler until we put it out for tasting.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions at: downtownalhambra@gmail.com

Thank you and GOOD LUCK bakers!!
