Last year the Heights Park Neighborhood Association revamped Oktoberfest, changed its location and introduced a chili cookoff. Well, it took off hotter than a habanero! So it didn’t take a bean brain to figure out it should be repeated.
The year’s festival will once again take place at 5:30 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 13, on Thompson Drive between Newberry and Greenleaf.
The pot-ular Chili Cookoff will kick things off and competition is expected to be fiercer than last year. Wanna show off your secret recipe or prove to your neighborhood you’re a better cook than your spouse? Prizes will be awarded for the top three tastiest treats, and the winner will be able to proudly show off with a winner sign posted in his/her yard following the event. You must enter by Wednesday, Oct. 10. Send an email to email@example.com to enter. Six quarts is the minimum quantity required for entry.
If you don’t cook, just come chow and chat. D on’t forget to bring the beer — after all, it is Oktoberfest! HPNA will provide all the fixins, hot dogs, chips and root beer for those teetotalers. A smores station will sweetly round out the menu.
So set the date aside, stew away or salivate until the event is here.
