Whoopie pies at festival

More than 400 flavors of whoopie pies will be featured at Saturday's Whoopie Pie Festival at Hershey Farms in Ronks. These mocha and cotton candy confetti whoopie pies were on display at the 2016 festival.

A Lancaster County treat will be in the spotlight Saturday at the annual Whoopie Pie Festival in Ronks.

The festival, which features more than 400 different flavors of whoopie pie — from carrot cake cream to s'mores and strawberry vanilla to coconut — is held at Hershey Farm Restaurant & Inn, 240 Hartman Bridge Road.

The festival runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

In addition to all those tasty whoopie pies, those attending the festival can participate in a whoopie pie treasure hunt, checkers game, race, “yell off” or eating contest. There are also activities in which you can make your own whoopie pie or launch the treats toward a target.
