It was a perfect weekend for 2 chili cookoffs at the Water Valley Park! The weather was nice and the chili was tasty!

Everybody's in a "Fall Festival" mood!

These cooks from Iowa relax and visit with friends while the chili is cooking.

Nice Halloween outfit!

It's time to add the broth and stir gently.
