Max Moulton was the overall winner in the BearFest Bear-y pie contest held last Wednesday at the Nolan Center. Moulton won for his Berry Diplomatic-Thimbleberry Pie. He was awarded bragging rights and a painting of a bear at Anan Wildlife Observatory by Brenda Schwartz-Yeager.

In one of the sweeter decisions of their lives, judges sliced into the task of picking the best berry pie entered in this year's Bear-y Pie contest last Wednesday on the first day of BearFest.

Thirteen pies and pie-style dessert dishes were submitted to the contest, which was judged on criteria such as appearance, aroma, sweetness, thickness, flakiness and taste.

Entries consisted of thimbleberry, blueberry, pecan, apple, cherry and combinations of blueberry and lemon, thimbleberry and salmonberry, strawberry and rhubarb, and huckleberry and blueberry gelee with a vanilla bean curd layer.
