Grand Rapids bakes a pie

I know absolutely nothing about Grand Rapids, Mich., but how do you get a whole city to shut down and a major chunk of the population to film a continual music video?

That’s just remarkable.

(I saw Don McLean perform this in a solo acoustic show but it’s been so long, I can’t remember where or when. It was either about 30 years ago in Florida or about 25  years ago in Kentucky. But it sounded exactly like this, complete with the audience singalong. I can’t believe “American Pie” is 40 years old. And I can’t believe I’m so old that I’m now reminiscing about things that happened 30 years ago.)
