Can I Sample the Chili?

Dozens of teams will be mixin’ and fixin’  to enter the Chili Cook-Off Contest. Starting at Noon, the public can sample the chili at any of the booths. But first, purchase a package of two-oz. cups and spoons from one of two PDA ticket booths (No personal cups, outside cups or bowls are allowed!), then it’s off and running to sample what the cooks have concocted. But hurry, as the chili sometimes runs out fast! Then vote for your favorite!
