Looking for a family-friendly community event this weekend? The Bucktown Apple Pie Contest returns this Sunday when approximately 80 contestants will compete for bragging rights ... and that blue ribbon.

The Apple Pie Contest serves as an annual fundraiser for the Friends of Holstein Park. There is no admission fee. But contestants are required to bring 2 pies; one is entered into the contest and one is cut into slices and sold to attendees throughout the day. The contest started in 2004 with 50 bakers and generated $1,800. In recent years there have been as many as 150 contestants with proceeds reaching close to $9,000.

The Bucktown Apple Pie Contest is Sunday October 2, 2016 from 2pm-5pm and is held in the Holstein Park Fieldhouse at 2200 N. Oakely Avenue.
