(Apple Valley)–To better serve the community, the Town of Apple Valley has made some changes to its fall events calendar. The Fall Festival, that has been an annual event for the past five years, has been canceled in preparation for the Town to partner with the Apple Valley Rotary to present the Happy Trails Chili Cook-off on October 20 at Lenny Brewster Sports Center in Apple Valley.
The 11th annual cook-off will feature more than 40 professionals competing in this International Chili Society sanctioned cook-off with the winner qualifying for the World Championships to be held in Palm Springs in 2013. The public is invited to taste and shop their way through booths of chili cooks and vendors. Additional food vendors will be on hand, as well as a beer garden.
The Town’s partnership will bring an expanded children’s area with inflatables, a hay maze and a petting zoo.
The Lenny Brewster Sports Center is located at 21024 Otoe Road. Gates will open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with the best chili selection between 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
