We have over 15 chilis confirmed and a few in the wings. A big neighborhood turnout this year is making up the bulk of the entries so far. Sancho Pistolas, Johnny Brenda's, and Heffe are among the professional contestants to throw down!

Who won?

Susquehanna's picture

it was 1 vote only this year for a winner, not 1 for restaurant and 1 resident.
still had critics, who awarded Sancho Pistolas (a top 4 contender among my group.)
fan vote went to the 4 horsemen which was hands-down quality. 4 meats including boar and elk. i actually had it first and couldn't believe it was that good.
i loved the chili dog who didn't place but among my group was the winner by majority.

mayor Kenney hung out (without spotlight) for most of the event. music was great again.
missed some of the usual crew who were involved in the early years of this event. they built something fun.

The 4 horseman was good. I thought Sancho Pistola's and Lloyd's were both really nice. I had a lot of fun the short time I was there.

I made my own chili on Sunday and invited my parents and sister over.

Took 1st place by a mile.

So glad you went! This happened to be the weekend of my bachelorette - I was sorry to miss it. It's sort of like seeing your child go off to college and succeed ya know? There will forever be chili in my <3.

Makes me so happy to know that it's a fun tradition :)

After we tasted them all in a preliminary round, we had to have a final round head to head in order to decide between HotDog and the Four Horsemen. They were both excellent.

exactly! this guy knows what he's talking about. that was our 1-2 with heffe and sancho rounding out the top 4. hot dog was my last and i was looking forward to it. we were all set with four horsemen but then had to go back again to both to confirm
