KINGSTON – City officials took a break from their jobs this afternoon to dig into a blueberry pie ….face first — all for charity. A city councillor, Kingston’s fire chief and more than a dozen city employees got down and dirty … For the first ever “pie eating contest” to support united way. The goal is to be the first to gobble down an entire pie — while blind-folded and with their hands behind their backs. The fastest time was done by the city’s bylaw officer — who scarfed it down in 1 minute 39 seconds. The municipal campaign is already at 60 percent of its 85 thousand dollar goal. Organizers hope to raise about a thousand dollars from the messy gorge-fest at market square.
