A long time tradition of county and interstate fairs has been the food competitions. One section includes baked goods of all sorts including pies.
Spokane Valley resident, Janice Suttner had been attending the fair for years and has been making pies for just as long, but never had she submitted a pie to the fair's competition. This year, was the year.
"I've always enjoyed them when I go the fair. I thought, I'll do it this year," Suttner said.
And then her blueberry pie won a blue ribbon.
