Chili Cook Off 2016

The Cultural Arts Council Douglasville/Douglas County hosted its 20th Annual Chili Cook Off on Saturday, October22nd and the hungry hordes descended on downtown Douglasville. Twenty-five chili booths hosted by political candidates and local businesses and area service clubs competed for bragging rights of being the best chili, the spiciest chili and the having the most sold chili. The best decorated booth was also highly competitive and a costume contest for all ages was also held as the crowd happily worked their way through hundreds of gallons of chili.

Sponsored by John Bleakley Ford, Georgia Power, and DC Rogue Runners
