Chili-Palooza is not only about Chili and Music, it’s also about supporting our local fire departments. The Best Chili Contest was created for the local fire departments to compete against each other and raise money for each department. Each sample of chili will cost $1. The fire departments will keep all the proceeds from the Best Chili Contest. The first place team will win $750 and the second place team will receive $250. Below is a list of the local participating fire departments!
