Winter weather has finally arrived in Louisville, and now that it’s here all everyone wants to do is warm up. Go to the annual Chili Cook Off at the Home of the Innocents, and heat up your tongue this winter. After all, it is the food of choice for all winter weather.
Chase Away Winter’s Chill with Chili
The chili cook off lasts from 5 to 7 pm. Vote on your favorite chili and see who wins the popular vote, and hang around to see which blend the judges will favor the most. You can also stuff the voting jars if you have a particular favorite. Tickets are $10 for general admission or $25 for a family. Bringing a big group with a big appetite? A table for 8 costs $75.
Lots of local Louisville businesses will have items for sale. Bid on them during the silent auction. Or, you may win a door prize just for showing up. The annual Chili Cook Off is at the Home of the Innocents, an organization that provides services and assistance to Louisville children. You’ll find the Home of the Innocents at 1100 E. Market Street in downtown Louisville. This part of the city is surrounded by several historic Louisville neighborhoods. Travel just a few blocks away to find Clifton, one of the city’s more colorful communities.
It’s Not Chilly in Clifton
