This was one of the best and biggest events in Lansing and unfortunately like many this year it has been cancelled. The Lansing Board of Water and Light announced today on their facebook about the cancellation due to the COVID-19 pandemic still going on. This year's event was going to be the 25th event and it was going to be special with a new theme called the "Roaring 20s" due to it being 2020, yes it is still 2020 by the way. Just because the event was cancelled this year they will having it back in 2021.

This event was one of my favorites due to being able to sample dozens of different chili flavors all while hanging out on a baseball field. The cookoff a couple of years ago moved from riverfront to Cooley Law School Stadium, and it made it even better since you relax after eating either on the field or in a seat in the stands.

Since we can't go this year you can relive past events, and chilis, below
