More than 25 great restaurants will compete in this hotly contested event for the title in the Chili Competition ~ you the people will vote for your fave. Also there will be amazing breads from Rock Hill Bakehouse.

We will have a raffle and silent auction and proceeds of the day will benefit the Lake George Arts Project.
