 A panel of judges will sacrifice their taste buds and award honors to the top four cooking teams. Chili will be judged on characteristics other than heat – namely aroma, consistency, color, flavor and aftertaste. Other foods, such as barbecue, may be prepared but will not be judged. Awards will also go to the best single and double booths for theme, costumes, design, action and audience appeal.      


 Please remember, this is a family event! We encourage all exhibitors to have kid-friendly activities & refreshments (pre-packaged only please) at their booths as you're sure to be visited by many trick-or-treaters! Back this year for the kids - COSTUME CONTEST!!!We'll also have plenty of fun & games for children of ALL ages. You do not want to miss this Spooktacular time!
