  Although the pie's ingredients cost about $800, The Georgettes serve up generous spoonfuls for free.

  The Guinness world record for the largest pumpkin pie weighed 916.25 kg (2,020 lb) and measured 3.7 m (12 ft 1 in) long. It was made by New Bremen Giant Pumpkin Growers in Ohio, USA.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest cheese pie; it weighed 862 kg (1,900 lbs 6 oz) and was made by the students of Educational Group AKMI in Thessalonica, Greece.

  The town celebration includes the Cherry Bomb Run, a cherry spitting contest and a cherry pie eating contest on the town basketball court.

  And, to make sure there's enough pie to go around, a group called the Georgettes pulls out an 8-foot square pie pan, filling and topping and makes what they believe is the world's largest cherry pie.
  "We think it's America's largest pie," says The Georgettes' Marylou Krautscheid, motioning at the 8-foot by 8-foot square pan brimming with 75 gallons of sugary pie filling.

  "It's not going to get any bigger, I'll tell you that."
