Chilifest is just six weeks away and the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce is hard at work with preparations for the celebration. Patty Hornuckle CEO of the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce said that invitations have been sent out to those who have entered before or who are part of the International Chili Society, but that doesn't mean they are the only one's who can participate. She said no matter who thinks they have a good chili or salsa, they should enter the contest and have a good time.
Hornbuckle also said the chamber is still looking for judges because they need a total of 90 for the two days.
For information on how to be a judge or to enter the contests call the camber office at 217-824-4919 or visit the office on the second floor of US Bank on the South side of the Taylorville Square. Hornbuckle appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
