Who makes the best chili in the Black River Valley? Find out on Saturday, October 10 when professional and amateur cooks showcase their talent and compete for cash prizes and bragging rights at the Ludlow Rotary Club's 18th Annual Chili Cook-Off.
The tasting starts at 11 a.m. and continues until 2 p.m.
All that's needed to enter the contest are three gallons of chili in a pot with a serving spoon and a $10 entry fee.
The Rotary Club will provide the table, Sterno and customer service.
The Rotary Club Chili Cook-Off will take place rain or shine in a large tent at the corner of Depot and Main streets-by the traffic light-in the center of downtown Ludlow.
A $6 admission entitles Chili Cook-Off visitors to all the chili they can eat, as well as bread, cider and ice cream.
Proceeds from the Annual Chili Cook-Off benefit the Black River Valley Senior Center and other Rotary projects.
Cash prizes will be awarded in three "People's Choice" categories - $100 to win, $50 to place and $25 to show.
Judges' awards will recognize the Best Chili, the Spiciest Chili and the chili served with the best Team Spirit.
Entry forms are due a week before the event and may be obtained from Rotarian Glenn Heitsmith at 228-8666.
