There will be something new at the Fall Festival this year – a chili cook off.
The chili cook off will be held Saturday, Oct. 12 at the Nevada County Courthouse. First prize will be $150, with second place bringing in $100. The third place finisher will earn $75. There is a $20 entry fee.
The chili will be judged on five criteria: aroma; red color; consistency; taste; and aftertaste.
Entry forms can be picked up at the Prescott-Nevada County Chamber of Commerce and must be turned in by 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11. For more information about the cook off, call 870-887-2101.
