Several hundred people gathered in Cheapside Park around lunchtime Wednesday to eat pie and ice cream.
They were there for the Great American Pie Contest and Ice Cream Social, an annual event in Lexington's Fourth of July festivities.
There were 35 pie entries among two categories, said Marianne Blodgett, an aide to Mayor Jim Newberry who helped organize the contest.
Sandra Ramsey of Pikeville won the made-from-scratch division with her apple pie. Priscilla Fallon of Lexington took top honors in the semi-homemade category with a pecan walnut maple sugar pie.
Never miss a local story.
Six judges from Sullivan University's Culinary Arts Institute determined the top three pies in both categories. The winners each got a gift certificate from Kroger, a ribbon and a chance to spend time with a Sullivan University chef. The first place winners also got a trophy. The contest was sponsored by the Lexington-Fayette County government, the Downtown Lexington Corporation, Flav-O-Rich and Kroger.
