Per Board of Health all Contestants must prepare chili on Friday, September 21st.   Doors are open 5:00 – 8:00 p.m.  at The Lutheran Church, 600 Central Street, Holliston.   Cool down is from 8:00 – 9:00.  Then leave the rest to us.

Chili will be transported to The Superette and refrigerated.  In the morning they will be set up at the Chili Booth and the heating process begins.

Come join the fun!  I know it’s an inconvenience not to be able to prepare your chili in your own kitchen.  It is a State requirement that it be prepared in an approved industrial kitchen.   Everyone loves the “Chili Contest”.  Let’s keep it alive!   It’s a lot of fun! All who register will be entered into a drawing for a prize to be determined.  (Limited to 12 Contestants – so Register early)
