Officials with the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce Chillifest Committee were busy Friday afternoon setting up stages, picnic tables, and chilli cook areas, all on the Square preparing for the 37th edition of the event taking place Saturday and Sunday.
The Miller Media Group broadcast position will again be on the south Courthouse lawn. Staff announcers will be using wireless equipment to interview folks around the Square, both days, on all 6 Taylorville-based radio stations.
CTI is again a major sponsor of this year's Greater Taylorville Chamber Chillifest.
For the first time in 3 years, hot chilli will be served by the bowl and quart by Chamber volunteers, and eaten at the nearby picnic tables. The sale of chilli and Pepsi products by the Chamber, makes this one of the Chamber's largest fund-raisers, besides attracting thousands to the community over the 2-day event.
Friday afternoon saw the pageant rehearsal take place. This year's pageants are again chaired by Brittany Moore.
