Help yourself to a (vanity) plate of pie

Let’s go pie wild! January 23 is National Pie Day and Rockland, Maine, celebrates with the 7th annual Pies on Parade event hosted by the Historic Inns of Rockland.

According to their website, the whole town of Rockland will go pie-crazy when the Historic Inns of Rockland are joined by Rockland businesses and restaurants to welcome hungry pie eaters to the town from 1 to 5pm. Proceeds from the event benefit the AIO (Area Interfaith Outreach) food bank and fuel assistance programs. The event has raised more than $30,000 to date! Check out this list of venues and pies (pdf).

In honor of National Pie Day, we at The Maine Plate offer two of our favorite pies in vanity license plate format. Enjoy!
