Volunteer chili makers will simmer up and serve their favorite chili recipe. Traditional, nouveau, spicy, white, savory, meaty, and vegetarian recipes will fill the F&M Trolley Barn with amazing, mouthwatering aromas.

Chili Cookoff winners will be revealed at 9:30 p.m., and dancing will continue until 11. Waterworks’ galleries will be open the entire evening.
