For your calendar, blackberry pie fans — Joyce Daze is Saturday

Peninsula Daily News

JOYCE — Joyce Daze Wild Blackberry Festival is coming up Saturday with music, a cheering contest, a grand parade and, of course, blackberry pie.

The 32nd annual festival will begin with a pancake breakfast at 7 a.m. and culminate with an hourlong parade at 1 p.m. featuring Grand Pioneer Loretta Bilow and Grand Marshal Clayton Mork, Crescent School superintendent.

To accommodate it, a stretch of state Highway 112 will be closed from 12:30 p.m. to 2:40 p.m. from the highway's intersection with Piedmont Road to east of downtown Joyce. A detour route will be marked.

A cheering contest will follow the parade at about 2 p.m.

Homemade blackberry pies will be sold beginning at 10 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. — or until they are all gone — at the Joyce Depot Museum.

Pies will be judged between 11 a.m. and noon. The contest is sponsored by Peninsula Daily News.

For more about the parade, phone Julie Hatch at 360-477-3749 or Damon Hatch at 360-461-1250. Ed or Marsha McKay at 360-928-3331 are organizing vendors.
