Lowber VFC beats back winter with inaugural chili cook-off
Lowber Volunteer Fire Company will hold its inaugural “Chili Cook-Off in the Yough Valley” from noon-4 p.m. March 16 at its hall and club, 386 Lowber Road.
A $1 admission fee entitles visitors to sample chili created by 16 cooks. The admission fee also qualifies as one People’s Choice Award vote, planners say.
A panel of judges will determine who takes home first place trophies in the categories of: first responders; businesses and restaurants; and open — for individuals and nonprofits.
The People’s Choice trophy will be awarded based on taste testers’ votes.
The event is all-ages, and the Fireman’s Club will be open for those over 21 to enjoy beer with their chili.
Proceeds benefit the Lowber VFC Flood Recovery Fund, according to planners.
