EL DORADO, Kansas - The Walter's Pumpkin Patch on US-77 is hosting its first annual "As American As Apple Pie" car show and wheat festival on June 26th from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. 

"We have been brainstorming on how to utilize Walter's Pumpkin Patch and El Dorado's backyard for year-round events and family gatherings," said Walter's events and marketing coordination Angie Day. "The public is ready to safely father and enjoy to create memories."

This event has something for the whole family to enjoy. There will be a bread and pie bake-off, the crowning of Miss American Wheat Queen and Miss El Dorado, then the fireworks show to end the day. 

The registration form for the bake-off and car show can be found on the Walter's Pumpkin Patch website.

In the bake-off, there will be no cost to enter the contest. Participants will receive a free entry into the event but must have their baked goods turned in by 5 p.m. and provide two items for judging. The people and judges will have a choice in apple pie and wheat bread.
