From Lightway at Sloans:

Okay Northwest Denver Chili Cookers or Tasters!!!!! Join us Saturday September 24th.
Drumroll please……. On September 24th, we are holding the 1st annual Chili Cook-off in the amazing Edgewater!!!

Lightway at Sloans and John Montgomery, head of the Colorado Cook-off Association for the past 25 years, have partnered to bring this EXCITING event to our wonderful community!

Best of all 100% of all money from registering and any donations will stay specifically in Edgewater to give back to our community who has been Lightway supporters and great neighbors.

It truly is such a fun and memorable day (whether you can cook or not!!) and the Lightway Girls have a lot of fun things planned that you wont want to miss!!

You can enter in the following ways (or any combination of categories):
1. Red Chili
2. Green Chili
3. SHOWMANSHIP- (Meg from Lightways favorite because she can dress up and bring on the fun!)

This specific chili cook-off is unique because the top three Colorado chili winners will automatically be qualified to go to the WORLD Championship in Terlingua, Texas which is held the first weekend in November 2016. If qualified, that is an event you won’t want to miss!!!
