Optimist Club Chili Cookoff Set For October 20

There’s a nip in the air, the leaves are changing color and what’s that? It’s must be time for the Nashville Optimist Club’s annual chili cookoff.

The cookoff will be at the NCHS playing fields parking lot, just prior to the Hornets football game against West Frankfort.

All area youth and adult community orgranizations are invited to host a booth of their own and test their chili against everyone else’s.

Prizes will be awarded for Judges Choice, youth booth judges choice, crowd favorite and best decorated booth.

The deadline for entries is Friday, October 13, and the cost is $30 per booth. Call Sara Kollbaum, (618) 599-0121, for more details or to enter.

There will be lots of entertainment at the event, and plenty of refreshments, desserts and of course, chili, available as well.

Admission is $3 adults, $1 students, and kids 5 and under free.
