Special prizes will be awarded in the Hot, Mild and Peoples Choice category. Veterans get to enter and taste for free! No matter what your tastes are, you are sure to find a chili to suit your palette!
The fall festival will be ongoing, with a kid zone with several fall-themed games to include a hay bale maze, paint your own pumpkin, a ring toss. There will be plenty to do for the adults with ax-throwing, a special brew for the occasion, cornhole and more!
