As the end of the year draws closer, so does the cold weather. While many enjoy this break from the hot Alabama summer heat, others dread the cold, always wishing to stay inside wrapped under a warm blanket and watching an online streaming service. Although this does sound nice, there are certain events you might want to attend that make it worth getting out in the cold. Take the Five Mile Creek Chili Cook-Off for instance. Even though the cold breeze surrounds you, you’re certain to stay warm, as well as have fun, when you participate in or attend the Five Mile Creek Chili Cook-Off!

More About the Event

On Saturday, November 17 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., the Tarrant Fire Department is hosting the Inaugural Five Mile Creek Chili Cook-Off. This event benefits the Tarrant Toy Drive as well as the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Price of admission is a $5 donation. While you’re enjoying tasting the different types of chili, Just A Few Cats will be performing live.

If you’re interested in registering to compete in the event, there are a few things you should know. First of all, you should download the Chili Cook-Off Team Packet. To register a team, the cost is $50.00. Be sure to fill out the chili competitor’s application. Once you register, a 10’x10’ space will be reserved for you and your team.

Award Categories

Five secret judges will visit each booth during the event, making note of the pros and cons of each chili. Each chili will be judged based on the following criteria:
