How was your experience?
My friends and I arrived at 1pm and the attendant at the parking entrance notified us that the competitors had run out of chili. HOW CAN THIS HAPPEN AT A CHILI FESTIVAL??? It was just such a bummer since you had to pay for admission, then pay for parking and then have to pay to eat something else besides what the event was for. Worst time and money I've spent. I won't be going again to say the least and neither will my friends. One other suggestion besides making sure the chili contestants have more than enough chili... try to have this event when the weather is cooler, not in the middle of Summer when it's 90 degrees out.
