The MainX24 World Heavy Weight Chili Championship is seeking the best chili in town. Registration is now open for the event to be held on Dec. 7, during the 24-hour festival on the Southside. The entry fee is $40 per team or $50 for two teams.
Last year, over 15 teams from area organizations and businesses competed head to head for bragging rights and temporary ownership of a championship belt created by Chattanooga artist Karen Rudolph.
Chili will be served from 12-4 p.m. All you can eat chili tickets are $8 and commemorative chili bowls will be available for $15. Feature drink specials will include Chattanooga Whiskey and local craft beer.
To round out the event, local bands Dark Horse Ten, Mythical Motors, and Musical Moose performing from OCI’s “Loading Dock of Rock.” Kids of all ages are encouraged to participate in the sidewalk chalk competition and face painting.
