The Annual West Plains Public Library Foundation Chili Cook-Off is celebrating its 14th year by offering musical entertainment by Blackjack Sound & Light to go along with its chili competition Saturday, February 2, from 4-7 p.m. The event will be held at the West Plains Civic Center, with this year’s proceeds going toward new carpet and paint for the Library.
This year’s Chili Cook-Off will also feature awards for Best Booth Décor, Grand Champion Chili, People’s Choice, and Fattest Chili Pot. Guests will have a chance to win gift baskets from Missouri State University-West Plains, the University of Missouri Tigers, the Zizzers, the Library and other businesses through a raffle.
Tickets for the event are $5 in advance at the Library, and $7 at the door. Children under 8 will be free.
Hot dogs and drinks will be available for purchase.
