Bragging rights are on the line. Well that, and $50 worth of Woodbine Dollars.

Woodbine’s annual Christmas celebration, including the lighted parade among other, traditional activities such as visits with Santa Claus, the cookie walk and marshmallow roasting, will feature a new event this year – a chili cook-off.

Chili cookers will be competing for $50 worth of  Woodbine Dollars to be spent the evening of ‘Bright Lights, Little City’ Christmas In Woodbine, as well as bragging rights for having the best chili in town.

The Woodbine Main Street-Chamber hopes to have six chili cook-off contestants ready with their tasty wares in front of Carson and Clark from 4:30 pm until the chili is gone. The only rule the chili cookers were asked to follow was to bring a roaster full of their own chili, so the chili types and tastes may vary.

And the tastiest of these chilies will be selected by the public.

Cost of tasting is $1 for three tastes, with the money being donated to Main Street projects. Tasters may then cast their vote for their favorite chili.

At 8 p.m., a winner will be declared, giving them the $50 worth of Woodbine dollars to be spent the remainder of the annual celebration as well as a traveling trophy and bragging rights until the 2011 Woodbine Christmas celebration.

Confirmed chili artists currently include Gary Hall, Greg Moores and Greg Kelley, but a few more teams are needed. If interested in participating, please contact Liz Lenz at 647-2629 or Lauren Cox at 647-2612.
