Apple Pie Contest Brings Community Together

October is prime apple picking season, and that means prime apple pie.

Apple pie is the quintessential American dessert.

And the Bucktown organization Friends of Holstein Park is using it to bring—and keep—their community together.

Eight Forty-Eight contributor Molly Each has the story.

The 3rd Annual Bucktown Apple Pie Contest takes place this Sunday in Holstein Park at 2200 North Oakley in Chicago.
