Love chili? Then get ready for the Chili Cook-off in Pinecrest, which this year takes place from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, March 21.
The annual event, sanctioned by the International Chili Society, will have a primary competition for professional chili cooks and a separate contest for amateur chili cooks.
There also will be country music bands, line dancing, mechanical bull riding, plus a selection of food, chili sampling and more.
Cost is $5 for general admission and free for Pinecrest Gardens members and children younger than 2.
All proceeds benefit the Community Foundation of Pinecrest, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving Pinecrest Gardens, which was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in October 2011.
Pinecrest Gardens is at 11000 Red Road. For more information, go to pinecrestgardens.org or call 305-669-6990.
