Pizza Palooza Draws a Crowd in Farmington HIlls

The first pizza tasting event brought 12 restaurants to the Costick Center.

The first-ever Pizza Palooza had 12 pizza restuarants competing Sunday to determine the best pizza in Farmington and Farmington Hills.

Winners were:

- Judge's Choice, 1st place

- Judge's Choice, 2nd place

- People's Choice, 1st place

- People's Choice, 2nd place

The event was the brain child of Department of Special Services programmer David Miller, who wanted to bring together local restaurants in a cool, family-oriented event. Four judges – Farmington-Farmington Hills Patch editor Joni Hubred-Golden, Farmington Observer editor Stacey Jenkins, and Farmington Press reporter David Wallace – named first and second place winners. Two People's Choice awards were also part of the all-you-can-eat event.

More than 125 people attended, from as far away as Ypsilanti. Children enjoyed face painting and games, coordinated by both the Department of Special Services and the Michigan chapter of Au Pair in America.

The Department of Special Services' next event, the annual Boo Bash, will be held Saturday, Oct. 15. To register, visit the Costick Center, call 248-473-1800, or register on-line at fhgov.com
