People gathered at the Lansing Board of Water and Light’s Chili Cook-off event Friday, and kicked off a new tradition for the event.
While most of the traditional aspects remain the same, this is the first time the event has been held in the fall, and what is more commonly considered “Chili weather.”
Being in the fall, as opposed to the previous times when it was held in June, allows for easier schedules for those attending, as well as allowing area college students and families to participate.
Proceeds from the Chili Cook-off will go to the Sparrow Foundation, Impression 5 Science Center and the H.O.P.E. Scholarship Program.
