The Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce Chillifest starts in just two days, and the city of Taylorville is buzzing with energy. This year will be bigger and better than it's been in a long time, with two stages for shows, carnival rides, and Taylorville now being the Chili Capital of Illinois. Patty Hornbuckle, CEO of the Taylorville Chamber explained all that's going on in the Taylorville Square to prepare for the celebration.
Hornbuckle wanted to clarify that both bags tournaments Chillifest is holding will be blind draws, to prevent people from choosing their partner and running the boards.
Chillifest kicks off Saturday Morning October 1st in the Taylorville Square. More information can be found at chillifest.info or by calling the chamber office at 824-4919. Hornbuckle appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
