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. While enjoying chili, beer, & wine, tasters will vote with provided coins, to help their favorite chili (or cook) win the Big Chili award. Line dancing instructors will get the party going to DJ tunes by Virtual Sounds, and guests can compete to win the always-outstanding raffle prizes and top off their tummies with delicious dessert. 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.
