We had a blast having Mark S. Allen from Good Day Sacramento, and his crew visiting our bakery this morning talking about this weekend’s big event – The Giant Pumpkin Festival of Elk Grove. One of the highlights this Sunday will be the Major League Eating Competition, Pumpkin Pie Eating Contest. Joey Chestnut will be back to compete, and joining him is Mark S. Allen, local Elk Grove heroes, Fire Chief George Apple and EGPD Officer Juaquin Farinha and many others.
Sinful Treats will be baking 150 lbs of Pumpkin Pies especially for this competition. It is one of the main events they look forward to every year! They will also be at the festival selling all kinds of pumpkin treats – pies, cupcakes, cookies and more!
“I’m not a big pumpkin pie guy, but these pies were beyond delicious.” – Joey Chestnut – Elk Grove World Pumpkin Pie Eating Championship 2015
