Get ready for a sweet weekend Celebration

Get your sweet tooth ready. It's time for the 12th annual Great American Pie Festival!

More than 30,000 pie lovers are expected to attend this weekend's event, which is held in Lakeside Park in Celebration, Florida. Tickets are a mere $10 for adults and $5 for seniors and children between the ages of six and 12 (plus another $10 for kids who want to enjoy bouncy castles, arts and crafts, and more in the Children's Area). And for that low price, you get to enjoy the Never-Ending Pie Buffet, featuring "award-winning pie, ice cream, toppings, cheeses and beverages."

This year's sponsors include Bakers Square Restaurants and Pies, Bonert's Slice of Pie, Legendary Baking, Kroger's Private Selection, Publix Super Markets, Inc., Village Inn, Winn-Dixie, Wick's Pies and Cabot Cheese. Dunkin Donuts, Smuckers, and Publix will also be on hand to supply coffee, toppings, and ice cream (among other delicious treats). There will be pies for sale, pies for sampling, pie decorating, baking demonstrations by chefs from all over the country, and of course a pie eating contest. 

The festival is held Saturday and Sunday, with tickets available at the event itself -- here are the details:

Saturday, April 27, 2013; 11am-7pm
