9th Annual ‘Addison By the Slice’ to be held August 3

National Night Out will be celebrated in many communities throughout the suburbs, but in Addison tradition calls for residents to gather together, eat pizza, and give out awards to Addison’s best pizzerias. So on Tuesday, Aug. 3, the community is invited to the 9th Annual “Addison By the Slice” Pizza Bakeoff on the Village Green, east of Village Hall at 1 Friendship Plaza, sponsored by Itasca Bank and Trust and 95.9 The River.

Entertainment will be provided by “Paparazzi,” as part of the final Concerts in the Park series, presented by the Special Events Commission and Cultural Arts Development Commission.

Once visitors have had the chance to sample various vendors’ offerings, they can visit the Addison Police Department’s National Night Out Booth to cast a ballot for the “People’s Choice Award” for favorite pizza in Addison.

Meanwhile, a panel of celebrity judges will determine the winners in various categories during a blind taste test. Awards will be given for Best Sauce, Best Cheese Pizza, Best Sausage Pizza, Best Deep Dish/Stuffed Pizza, Best Thin Crust Pizza, Best Specialty Pizza, and Judges’ Choice, as well as the People’s Choice. Winners will be announced shortly before 9 p.m.
