Giant pie at hit at Nappanee Apple Fest

Mary Hochstetler and Deb Martin cut and package slices of the 7-foot apple pie Friday at the Nappanee Apple Festival.

NAPPANEE — Linda and Lavon Short had never been to the Nappanee Apple Festival before, despite living only half an hour away, so when they visited Friday they made sure to get their piece of the pie.

The Goshen couple stopped to see the 600-pound apple pie in the window of El Cielito Lindo during the 45th annual festival, which is underway until 6 p.m. Sunday. The 7-foot diameter pie with a lattice crust has been a staple of the festival since 1976.
