Marie Atkins wins 29th Annual Mom and Apple Pie Contest

The 29th Annual Mom and Apple Pie Contest was held at the San Luis Obispo Home Show Saturday.

The event is put on by Idler's Appliances.

"We're trying to find a way to honor mothers right around Mother's Day. We thought, what better way to honor mothers than to have an apple pie contest," said Don Idler, the owner of Idler's Appliances

13 people entered pies into the contest. They were all competing to win a brand new KitchenAid gas range valued at $2100.

"These are basically the best pies you'll find in San Luis Obispo County. We also have some entries from Orcutt, Santa Maria, Atascadero, Morro Bay, and Nipomo," said Idler.

Marie Atkins took home the grand prize.

KSBY'S Dave Hovde was also at the event as one of the celebrity judges.
