WhatsOn Mar 03, 2017 Midland Mirror

The organizer of Ontario's Best Butter Tart Festival in Midland is reaching out online to get some major star power at this year’s event.

Angela Bird, co-ordinator of the festival, has reached out to the host of CBC's Rick Mercer Report via Twitter to gauge his interest in serving as a judge at the summer soiree to celebrate all things sticky and gooey.

“I know Rick Mercer is all about doing super-Canadian things. But has he ever judged a butter tart contest?” she wrote.  “2017's your year, Rick!”

Mercer's visited Simcoe County last year, joining Barrie Mayor Jeff Lehman to check out the city's operations facility and take a ride in a snowplow.

The fifth annual butter tart festival runs June 10. For more information, go to buttertartfestival.ca.
