Temperatures are cooling off and now is the perfect time for a chili cookoff on beautiful Lake Greeson in Arkansas.

The annual event was canceled for a couple of years because of Covid but it's back. So get ready for a great time and some great chili too. It all takes place at Self Creek Lodge and Marina on Lake Greeson in Kirby, Arkansas on Saturday, October 29.

Be sure to load up your family and friends and bring your appetite. You can try all the chili that will be competing for first place. The chili teams will start cooking away at 10 AM and there will be delicious chili to try by noon. There will also be hot dogs, chips and salsa and soft drinks.

Awards will be given for 1st, 2nd, 3rd Places and there is also the People's Choice award which is judged by your dollar donations.

After the winners are announced there will still be plenty of fun with a live auction. There will be tons of great items you can bid on. Plus there will be a DJ playing great music and then get ready to grab the mic for some karaoke.

I am honored to once again be a judge at the chili cookoff. First of all, because it's fun and it benefits some great causes. Then of course there is the chili and I do love chili!
