The lakeside village hosts dozens of chili makers from across the country in The Village’s (MonteLago Village at Lake Las Vegas) first-ever Chili Cook-Off sanctioned by the International Chili Society. Cooks will produce their best Red Chili, Chili Verde and salsa to be judged.
A People’s Choice Award will allow the public to vote for their favorite and this unsanctioned category has no rules so cooks are encouraged to use their creativity.
In addition to the chili samplings, guests can dine on barbeque chilidogs and chiliburgers, partake in a raffle for great prizes and enjoy shows by the Green Valley High School Orchestra beginning at noon. A DJ will keep the energy going throughout the day. Shops and restaurants inside The Village will offer a 25 percent discount to patrons.
