Huntsburg Grange is holding their twentieth Chili Cook-Off and raffle on Saturday, March 21. Last year’s winners are ready to challenge anyone who makes a great chili and compete for the People’s Choice awards. Please call 440-636-3052 no later than March 7 to register. Cash prizes are awarded for the top entries.
The cook-off is held from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the historic Huntsburg Gym behind Fire Station #2 at the intersection of Rt. 322 and Rt. 528 with parking behind the Huntsburg Community Center. Buy a sampler pack for just $3 to taste all entries and vote for your favorite chili. There is no cover charge so come for the music, 50/50 raffle, and Chinese auction. Compete in the cake walk, taste free cake with famous Grange frosting, visit the vendors, and kids games will keep them busy. All proceeds will be used for community projects.
Other events sponsored by the Huntsburg Grange include the open house and rummage sale in the town hall on April 25 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.; May 25 Memorial Day in the pavilion with free hot dogs for Veterans; concerts from 6 to 8 p.m. on June 20 with Polar Vortex jazz band and July 18 with Fort Huntsburg country band; and dine at the Pomona Diner at the fair from Sept. 3 through 7.
