Wildlife West Music Festival Next Weekend (August 6th – 8th)

POSTED AS A COMMUNITY SERVICE BY GADABOUT-BLOGALOT

This is it again according to Richard Eager who should know.  Richard has gathered the talent for each of Wildlife West’s great annual music events.  This is the 8th annual music event and Richard, the folks at Wildlife West and the many entertainers have had it right every time.  So don’t miss the show this year as it looks to be the most successful yet.  Don’t forget the Almost World Famous Pie Auction where you can bid on pies baked by folks you never imagined could walk and chew gum at the same time  (such as myself) … much less mix ingredients. You and your friends and family get to enjoy the pies, while Koshari the Bear and perhaps other animal residents get to eat food purchased with the auction proceeds.

If you believe you can bake pies worthy of the competition, you can drop your contributions off at the Wildlife West office on Friday the 6th or Saturday the 7th by 5:00 P.M.  The auction will begin at 6:30 P.M. Please place your recipes along with your name in some fashion on the pie, so you can get the recognition you deserve, and the lucky purchaser can bake your pie forever.

If you have been lucky enough to have attended the shows in the past, why not post a comment about the great time you had and the wonderful pie you brought.  Here’s this from Mr. Eager:
