There will be two Chili Cook Off contests. The “Professional” Cook Off (commercial) will begin at 4PM sharp and the “Amateur” Cook Off (residents) will begin promptly at 5PM. Once the chili lovers have taste all contestants’ chili, they will vote for their favorite and drop their ballot in the ballot box.

In addition to the People’s Choice, there will be an independent panel of judges.
