The calendar is winding down and the 2018 edition of the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce Chillifest is just 12 days away.  The 2-day event takes place on the Taylorville square October 6th and 7th, and committee members met Monday night in the Chamber board room to finalize plans for the event.

Entries are still needed for the "Lil Chilli Bean" baby contest.  It's a "People's Choice" contest, with the top 3 babies earning the most money, earning Chamber gift certificates.  Entry rules and forms are available at the Chamber office or on-line at the event's web site, chillifest-dot-info, that's chillifest with 2-L's.

Chilli cookoff chair Tom Calvert reported that chilli cooks are signing up for 2 days of International Chilli Society sanctioned cookoffs during Chillifest, with cooks signed up from as far away as California.

Calvert added he's in need of additional judges for the 2 days of I-C-S chilli cookoffs.  To volunteer, contact Calvert at 565-2791.
