Whoopie pie contest
The crowd cheers, above, as Cadence Pert, 13, of Penobscot, center and at right, wins the kids division in the whoopie pie contest at the Blue Hill Fair on September 5, one of 20 entries in the kid and adult submissions. Pert’s traditional whoopie pie was a family recipe; though it had been made before, she had never entered it into competition. On the morning of the content, Pert taste-tested one of her creations for breakfast, a sweet start to an auspicous day. Ava Sprague, 10, of Hancock took second.
