The Honeymoon Bay Blackberry Pie Festival has been rescheduled to September 24, due to the late ripening of the berry in the Cowichan Valley.

Last year’s event saw the line to purchase a pie begin forming at 9 a.m., with all but 15 of the 157 pies sold within 15 minutes of the official start time of 10 a.m. at the Honeymoon Bay Farmer’s Market.

The annual sale is put on by the Honeymoon Bay Community Society, with society volunteers baking the delicious pies.
