7th Annual NESCO Pi Day Celebration
Mar 03, 2015 10:59PM
Celebrate Pi, the mathematical constant, with pie, the delicious treat. As this will be the only time for the next 1,000 years that March 14, 2015 will be the beginning of Pi—3.1415—the Near East Side Community Organization (NESCO) is making the seventh annual NESCO Pi Day from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Arsenal Technical High School the biggest event yet.
Join local foodie guru, Jolene Ketzenberger, as the head judge for three separate, pie-baking competitions— for community entrants, culinary students and professional chefs from Indy’s hottest new eateries. Winners are added to the plaque that hangs at Pogue’s Run Grocer, and this year’s first and second place winners receive gift baskets full of kitchen gadgets from ZESCO.
In addition to lots of pie and music, children can experience the math and science zone, an area with interactive games and expositions conducted by winners of the VEX Robotics Championships. The Indianapolis Colts Cheerleaders will also be available for photos and autographs.
Other event sponsors include Wick’s Pies, Inc., Ivy Tech Community College, Angie’s List, the Indianapolis Police Foundation, United Consulting, State Representative Dan Forestal, Councilor Zach Adamson, and Blake Johnson for City Council.
