George, Washington, serving cherry pie for 4th

Tue., July 3, 2012, 1:29 p.m.

GEORGE, Wash. — Is it really the world’s largest cherry pie?

Would George, Washington, tell a lie?

The Grant County town claims the pie title for its annual Fourth of July celebration when the Georgettes pull out their 8-foot-square pie pan and add filling and topping.

Organizer Debby Kooy told the Columbia Basin Herald if you want to get technical, it’s really a cobbler. The pie weighs about half a ton and serves more than 1,500 people.
