Do you make great chili? Is it better than other people?s chili? Here?s a chance to prove it.

The Williston Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) will sponsor its annual Chili Cook-Off as part of the Light Up Williston ceremonies on Dec. 7. Each chef in the ?mild? and ?spicy? categories (you may enter both) is asked to make a minimum of five quarts of chili. (Tables, electrical outlets, spoons and cups for serving will be provided.)

The entrance fee is 10 cans of food, which will be donated to a local food pantry. Prizes will be awarded to the top three chefs in each category.

The entries will be judged by members of the City Council during the Christmas parade, which begins at 6 p.m.

Once the winners have been chosen, the public is invited (for a ?fee? of one can of food or $1) to sample all of the entries.

All proceeds benefit local food banks.

Rules and application forms may be picked up at City Hall or obtained by calling Jessica at 318-2904 or e-mailing her at jessicaevangel@hotmail.com. The deadline for registration is Dec. 3.

Parade details and entry forms may be obtained by calling Julie Thorrington at 528-1712. There is no entry fee this year. All entries must be received by Tuesday, Dec. 4.
