The 2017 Annual Plaza Midwood-Chantilly Chili Cook Off

Big thanks to everyone who came out to support and participate this year despite the bad timing with Hurricane Matthew. It was awesome to see the community and friends come together at the last minute to make it all happen. We were able to raise $1,725.00 dollars for the Purple Heart Foundation! Though many were unable to reschedule at the last minute, we wanted to let you guys know we appreciate all of the support and efforts to keeps this going. We are looking forward to seeing everyone next year! Thanks & Happy Holidays!

The month of October usually brings us cooler weather just in time to enter your own chili recipe at the annual chili-tasting event. Chili fans will vote for their favorite who will win the title of “Tasters Choice” (best overall chili). Gates open at noon at the McElhattan’s Machine & Rod parking lot (1318-D Central Avenue near Sammy’s Deli between CVS & Family Dollar) for this family-friendly event. If chili is not your thing, come for the Ladybugs bake sale, raffle, lots of live music and all-around good fun.
