It's back! The Lansing BWL Chili Cookoff is kicking off next Friday (September 29th from 5:30p - 9p) at Adado Riverfront Park in Lansing.

This year’s theme is music so get your taste buds ready for this year! Dozens of Lansing chili masters will be drumming up gallons of chili, including local restaurants, nonprofits, businesses and organizations. From spicy hot to vegetarian, they’re ready to fight to win awards including People’s Choice and Best Meatless.

Back again this year is the merchandise tent, a family area and the chili dog eating contest. You can also get in early again this year at 5pm with a Chili Head Start Pass and skip the lines. Plus they will have more entrances so people can get in quicker. Extra tip: bring a muffin (they also sell them there as well) it helps to carry your chili around.

Proceeds from the Chili Cook-off will benefit Pennies for Power, Impression 5 Science Center and the H.O.P.E. Scholarship Program.

Plus I will be broadcasting LIVE from there on Friday 9/29 from 2p - 6p.

Tickets are on sale now here.
