Celebrity judges at the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center’s sixth annual “Say It Ain’t Say’s” sweet potato pie contest on Sunday awarded first place to Kelli Marks of Cathead’s Diner for her “Perfectly Purple Pie,” and second place to Anne Woods of Honey Pies for her “Bubba’s Sweet Potato Meringue Pie.”

The crowd gave the People’s Choice Award to Dana Yarbough-Fluker for her “Scrumptious Sweet Potato Pie,” and she also won second place in the amateur division. First place in the amateur division was Delores Morris (amateur, “The One by Dee).

The event celebrates Arkansas’s “Sweet Potato Pie King” Robert “Say” McIntosh, who for many years was Black Santa to the city’s children, and African-American foodways.
