The Maine town of Rockland, dubbed “Pie Town USA” by the Food Network, is hosting the ninth annual pie-a-thon to celebrate National Pie Day (yes, there is one, it’s Jan. 23). The town is celebrating the event Jan. 27 from 1-5 p.m. when the Historic Inns of Rockland join town businesses and restaurants for “Pies on Parade,” where visitors can sample more than 40 different pies throughout the community, take tours of the town and some guest rooms at the inns, and participate in silent auctions featuring pies, local gift certificates and a chance to win an inclusive two-night stay.

All proceeds from Pies on Parade benefit the Area Interfaith Outreach Food Pantry & Fuel Assistance Program. Over the past eight years, more than $50,000 has been donated to the pantry. Lodging packages can be found at www.historicinnsofrockland.com, or by calling 877-762-4667.
