Free pie at PIE Airport to celebrate Pi Day

PIE airport

St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport (PIE) is celebrating Pi Day a day early this year by handing out free individual-sized strawberry and Key Lime pies on Friday, March 13 from 1:30 to 3:14 p.m.

Pie will be served both curbside (drive-by pie) and inside the terminal.

Why free pie?

The Greek letter “π” (Pi), is the symbol that represents the mathematical constant that is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter and has been calculated to over a trillion digits, the first of which are 3.14.

And, of course, free pie is a great way to celebrate PIE airport, which gets its identifier code from its original name, Pinellas International Airport.

The winner of the pie eating contest will receive two round trip tickets on the first flight to PIE and a hotel stay at the Postcard Inn from May 15 – May 18, 2014.

To enter the contest, you’ll need to register and get a raffle ticket. Five pie-eating contestants will be drawn from those raffle tickets and the person who eats their pie the fastest will win the contest.

The prize gets awarded right away, and the winner has to be prepared to leave on the inaugural flight to Tampa Bay/St. Pete, departing CVG at 5:25 pm on May 15.

If you’re intent on winning, we suggest you bring along a change of clothes so  you don’t have to board the flight with pie-stains on your shirt.
