PHOTOS: Inaugural Pie Joust In Town Square A Rousing Success

Print This Post  Email This Post

A rambunctious crowd filled Town Square Friday evening (Aug 19) for what will surely prove to be a popular annual event in Burien… the Pie Joust. If you missed this inaugural event, you have our sympathies!

Funds raised by this charity event will benefit the new bike-oriented B-Townies organization as they move forward with their mission to encourage bike-sharing in Burien and the installation of additional bike racks in the downtown area.

This year’s Pie Joust was sponsored by Mick Kelly’s, Bicycles West and Alaskan Brewing.

We’ll have full details on the event — including our exclusive video — coming next week. For now, here is a set of photos shot by BTB photographer Michael Brunk.

    That is an awesome idea

    I’d call it “good clean fun”, (which it was), but it was the greasiest mess I’ve ever been a part of. I loved seeing Burien’s Town Square grassy knoll covered with people watching and laughing (and avoiding the flying whipped cream). What a hoot! And all for a great cause: Igniting the bike-riding culture in our community.

    Congrats to Jon Nelson and friends for carrying out this brilliant idea and kudos to our supporting businesses for putting so much into it. It was a blast. I can’t wait to see the second edition of the Pie Joust next year!

    Great Job! Great photos! Another fun event and brainchild of Mr. Nelson and friends.

    What an amazing event. Thanks to everyone who came up with this terrifically silly idea and to everybody who got in the spirit to get publicly pied. It landed Burien on the front page of the online Seattle Times for something really, really positive and cool for a change, and their story has some great video and photos. Way to go, John & team!

    I heard the frivolity four blocks away and had to go see what was happening. Thank you for bringing small town fun to the big city:)
