Fireworks and Chili


Whew, what a busy weekend!
It started out Friday evening
with fireworks. Our fair city
sets off fireworks to celebrate
the opening evening of the
Chili Challenge.







You'll remember that each
year our city has a festival
where everyone can go from
booth to booth and sample
a variety of chili, salsa or
wings. This is where we
spent Saturday afternoon.




The festival mascot with
familiar faces.





There are a TON of booths! If
you lined all of them up, there
are probably two blocks worth
of booths!




This was my favorite booth. It
had a 60's theme as you can
see. Everything was tye-dyed
and their table covering were
record covers. All their team
members were dressed to
match the theme. The sign
below was outside of their
booth.




A great way to spend a Fall
afternoon!




Mr. Ken even met a new friend.
Ha! Ha!

    A chili tasting would be so fun! I just remembered I have some leftover chili in the fridge!

  6. Hi Melinda,
    I love chili but it doesn't always like me LOL...
    What a fun day, and how nice that your town has fireworks. Not many towns in my area have them any more.
    Have a sweet day, Elizabeth
