Announcing the 16th Annual Chili Cook Off  on Saturday, May 28th

This is a great way to get both our summer lake home and permanent residents of the Heart of the Lakes into town. This event has been continuing to grow and currently draws approximately 1000 people that sample chili at various businesses and organizations. We hope that all previous participants will be back again this year and would like to ask those businesses and organizations that have not participated to consider registering this year.

We would like to see this event continue to grow in attendance and really feel increasing the participants will certainly help. We hope you will consider participating in this event and help showcase your business or organization and the community of Annandale. Every chamber member can participate as a contestant or a supporting sponsor.
