The Chili Cook-off that carries some of the biggest bragging rights around these parts is the Texarkana Area Veterans Council’s 23rd Annual Chili Cook-off at Texarkana College on February 17, 2023.
Some of the most unique, different, delicious, and curious chilis have come thru this competition over the years. With categories for businesses, civic groups & organizations, individuals, and of course “peoples choice”, dozens of teams will be participating. All funds raised from this event goes to transportation taking local veterans back and forth to the VA in Shreveport. For more information email USMCgreg@aol.com
