Virginia City Chili on the Comstock
Saturday, May 11, 2013
12pm - 2pm
Virginia City, Nev.'s 30th Annual Chili on the Comstock returns to the historic town Saturday, May 11, and Sunday, May 12, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and we'll be broadcasting live.
Taking place along C St., the historic town's main drive, the event promises all the favorite flavors and brings a new Fireball Crawl, live music and family friendly activities.
The two-day event hosts around 40 of the best chili cookers in the west competing for a spot in the International Chili Society (ICS) World Finals later this year in Las Vegas. Competitors start from scratch on Saturday morning and a winner is picked for each day. There is also a people's choice award with winners receiving cash and "Virginia City-style" prizes.
In addition, a "Family Fun Zone" takes over the Delta Saloon parking lot with multiple bounce houses, face painting, music including the Chris Gardner Band and more.
