LEITERSBURG - For decades, thousands have traveled to the tiny town of Leitersburg for a taste of nature's candy - the peach. The fuzzy fruits are the stars of the Leitersburg Peach Festival, which starts Saturday, Aug. 14, and continues through Sunday, Aug. 15, at Leitersburg Ruritan Community Park. The free food festival enters its 31st year as a fundraiser for the Leitersburg Ruritan Club. But amid all the peachy bliss - peach cobbler, peach ice cream, peach drinks, peach butter, peach salsa and thousands of locally grown peaches for sale - the peach pie contest has played only a supporting role, organizers said of prior years.

GREENCASTLE, Pa. -- What tastes better than mom's apple pie? Maybe Ginny Lays' peach-raspberry pie. Or Allyson Flynn's pecan chocolate chunk. Or, just maybe, one of a number of other crusted creations presented for judging Friday at the first Pie Baking Contest held in Greencastle. The bake-off was part of First Friday, which is sponsored by the Greencastle-Antrim Chamber of Commerce and Greencastle Area Arts Council. Pie judges were Pennsylvania state Rep. Todd Rock, Greencastle Mayor Robert Eberly, Tower Bank President and CEO Jeff Shank and Carissa Martin, owner of Antrim House Restaurant.

It wasn't ideal, but it worked out all right. Stephanie Owings got off work, hurried to the Leitersburg Peach Festival on closing day and snagged herself a peach pie just in the nick of time. "I didn't even get to look around," Owings said. That was last year. This year was better. Owings, 20, of Maugansville, showed up early Saturday at Leitersburg Ruritan Community Park ready to do the day right. The annual attendee said she first likes to hit the vendor booths.

Town festival creates a peach buzz By ANDREA BROWN-HURLEY / Staff Writer LEITERSBURG - Trudy and Frank Maier traveled 150 miles from Wilmington, Del., to the 21st annual Leitersburg Peach Festival Saturday because they heard the ice cream was worth the effort. They heard right, said the couple, who plan to take a half-bushel of fresh peaches back to Delaware. "By the time we get home, they'll be gone," joked Frank Maier. The Maiers were among more than 8,000 visitors expected at this year's festival, said Leitersburg Ruritan member Pete Cowan, who co-chaired the event.

By MATTHEW BIENIEK / Staff Writer photo: JOE CROCETTA / staff photographer [ enlarge ] A packed Leitersburg Community Park meant everything was peachy at the 19th annual Leitersburg Ruritan Club's Peach Festival. And around here, peach pie is a serious matter. And serious matters bring strong opinions. Judges at a homemade peach pie contest held at the festival Saturday managed to agree on the winners - Susan Drury of Greencastle, Pa. for her almond- and crumb-topped open faced pie and Pam Jones, also of Greencastle, for her closed-top pie. Jones placed second in the contest last year.
