Who doesn’t love blueberries?

In Farmington Hills, four days – July 15-18 – will be dedicated to the nutrient dense berries touted for their anti-aging effects. What better food to cook up a festival around to support the Adults 50 & Better Transportation Program.

The 11th Annual Blueberry Pie Extravaganza starts Tuesday and Wednesday, July 15-16, at the William M. Costick Activities Center kitchen, where the pies will be baked from 1:30-4:30 pm. Then, from 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. on both Thursday and Friday, July 17-18, the pies will be sold for $10 each – most of them, anyway.

Some will be consumed at 12:30 p.m. Thursday during an old-fashioned pie-eating contest – no utensils or hands allowed – at the Costick Center.

Contestants will be city employees, including Mayor Barry Brickner, City Manager Steve Brock, Police Chief Charles Nebus, Fire Marshal Jason Olszewski, Director of Special Services Ellen Schnackel, Human Resources Director John Randle, Cook Jules Iles, Dishwasher David Brock, Life Guard Larry Lee and Camp Counselor Kaitlin Stieber.

The Costick Center is located at 28600 W. Eleven Mile Road in Farmington Hills.  For more information, call (248) 473-1800.
