What better way to wrap up a weekend then by making "The Best Chili" in town.
The 4th Annual Western-themed Central Coast Chili Festival gets started this Sunday from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm at Biddle Park just west of the Village of Arroyo Grande.
How it works, the "Maverick" competition has a few rules and impartial judging. Anyone can compete in the Red Chili, Vegetarian Chili and Chili Verde, divisions. Chili must be cooked on-site and it's $20 to enter.
There will also be the "Old Hand" International Chili Society (ICS) Regional competition judged event. The Chili for this competition is also prepared on-site, but all contestants must be ICS members.
The "Chuck Wagon" chili cooking competition is judged by the public. This competition is open to restaurants and chili is prepared in advance in a San Luis Obispo County Health Department approved facility.
If chili isn't you thing there will be plenty of live entertainment, wild west demonstrations, arts and crafts booths, children's games, food, beer and wine.
To cost to get in is $5 per person with free admission for children under 12 years of age. All proceeds of this event benefit local educational scholarships and charities.
Make sure to tune in to Daybreak at 5 and 6 this week you could have a chance to score some free tickets.
