As part of the second annual “Festival of Slice” pizza celebration on Saturday, awards were doled out to three participants who truly were “Bigger, Better and Cheesier!”
The award for Best Cheese went to Jaco's Pizzeria. Sammy's Pizzeria took Best Specialty for its “7-1-6” pizza, which features chicken fingers and steak. The People's Choice award went to Favorites Pizzeria in Lewiston for its honey garlic chicken pizza.
“Festival of Slice” was held at The Conference & Event Center Niagara Falls on Old Falls Street as part of “Jingle Falls USA.” Event organizers said they were pleased – and surprised – at the turnout. More than a few thousand people lined the venue – and stood in lines, as they waited for samples of Niagara County’s prize pizza pies.
Each of the nearly two-dozen vendors sold both cheese and a variety of specialty pizzas in party-size slices.
“Jingle Falls” continues this weekend. To view the complete schedule, visit www.JingleFallsUSA.com or follow Jingle Falls USA on Facebook.
The Festival of Slice is made possible by the City of Niagara Falls, Destination Niagara USA, The Conference & Event Center Niagara Falls, and Old Falls Street USA. For more information, visit www.FestivalofSlice.com.
