The second-annual ‘Pie Joust‘ will splat its way into Burien Town Square Park starting at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 18, causing lots of laughs and helping raise money for various local charities.

This is one of the more fun annual fundraiser events in B-Town (we’re the official Media Sponsor) where participants joust by riding bicycles and throwing pies in each others’ faces, all in the name of helping local non-profits.

Cost is just $10 to participate in advance (or $20 at event without costume; $15 at event with), or $25 for a family of four (nothing says togetherness like pie-throwing…), and there will be prizes – register online here!

This year’s creamfest promises to be bigger than last year’s, and will include such added amenities like a Beer Garden, Kid’s Fair, a Pie Cannon (!), an Extreme Spelling Bee and much more – be sure to check the blog often for more updates as we get closer! Also, read our coverage (w/pics, etc.) of the first-ever Pie Joust here.

Here are some of the Rules:

  1. Wear the most alluring costume you won’t mind throwing away.
  2. No direct contact > pie must leave your hand.
  3. No Ducking.
  4. Referee’s verdict is unimpeachable (no roughing the ref).

Prizes will be awarded haphazardly in each bracket for the following:

  • Costume
  • Costume concept
  • Pie in face picture
  • Shower dance
  • Sportsmanly like
  • Creaming

Immediate Disqualification for the following:

  1. Making direct contact with opponent
  2. Ducking from well thrown pie (Referee Discretion based upon movement of spine from line of flag pole
