Good Food • Family Fun • Charity

Some teams focus exclusively on the chili while others go for the “whole package”, decorating their booths with a theme, dressing in costumes, and putting on a show.  Either way, the order of the day is GOOD FOOD, FAMILY FUN and CHARITY -- all proceeds will benefit the Allen County SPCA. 

$5 Admission fee for public tasting
