Braham Pie Day Friday!
Braham is known as the Homemade Pie Capitol of Minnesota, and it’s annual Pie Day is tomorrow, Friday, Aug. 5.
Pie Day began in 1990 as a pie and ice cream social in July, funded by a tourism grant for festivals celebrating a community focus after the 4th of July. According to the official website, in 1992 the date was changed to the first Friday in August. At that time, the Isanti County Historical Society became the organization in charge of the festival.
The event has grown to include crafters, small quilts display, a pie art show, unique foods, performances and demonstrations from folk artists, story tellers, and musicians. There are also pie baking and pie eating contests, as well as a pie relay race.
WCMP will be doing a live broadcast on Friday, from Pie Day in Braham, from 10-noon.
