Webster’s 22nd Annual Chili Fest will be Wednesday, Nov. 27, from 5-7 p.m. This is one of Parents Club’s largest fundraisers of the year.
People who want to help volunteer at the Chilifest- students, parents, alumni and community members, can email the Parent Club committee chairs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The night of the chilifest, everyone will get a chance to taste a sample of each contestant’s chili, restaurants and amateurs, and then tasters all vote for the best chilis, one from the restaurants and one from the amateurs.
The restaurant winner competes against the winner of the Kirkwood Chili Bowl at the contest at the Turkey Day game; the winner is announced at the game, during half time. Along with chili, hot dogs and a la carte items will be sold separately.
Tickets are sold at WGHS and grade schools in Webster, and online, on the Parents Club official website. They will also be sold at the entrance of the event; however, people can also buy the tickets on sale at Schnarr’s Hardware. The tickets for adults are $10 and $5 for students, children ages five and under are free.
This years’ restaurant competitors are J. Greene’s Pub, Llywelyn’s Pub, Olive + Oak, St. Louis Wing Company, Straub’s and Weber’s Front Row.
This years’ amateur competitors are Woodland 1 Sports, WGSD Board of Education, WGHS Class of 2020, WGHS Class of 2021, WGHS Class of 2022, WGHS Class of 2023 and FACs Class.
This is Zora Thomas’ first year on with Echo publications. She enjoys being involved with the school, and is looking forward to the rest of the year.
