A Little "Chili" in Chicamacomico

There is just something about a cool, crisp September day that makes you long for all of the comforts of Fall…including a warm, satisfying bowl of chili.

On Saturday, September 15th, you’ll have a chance to participate in the 15th Annual Chicamacomico Banks Fire and Rescue Chili Cook-off at the Cape Hatteras KOA in Rodanthe. Tantalize those taste buds with the best chili this side of the Oregon Inlet Bridge, starting at 2pm! Hamburgers, hot dogs, and homemade desserts will also be available.

Enjoy an afternoon of good food, good music, and good fun, while supporting Chicamacomico Banks Fire and Rescue!
Festivities start at noon.

On Friday evening, Sept. 14, there will be a cook’s meeting, registration, pig-pickin’, and live music by Mojo Collins from 4 until 8 p.m.

If you’re interested in participating in the Chili Cook-off, contact Larry Grubbs @ (252) 996-0019.
