Hot Cars & Chili -- Car Show/Chili Cookoff

January ??, 2021

North Palm Beach Recreation Department holds an annual open car show/chili cook-off every year.  This is a very popular event that draws thousands of participants.  The 2020 Hot Cars & Chili was held on Saturday, Jan. 25th from Noon-4:00pm at Anchorage Park. 

Chili Cookoff

Local chili teams consisting of individuals, clubs and restaurants concocted their chili specialties for the public to sample.  They are trying to gain your vote of approval.  For a $5/person wristband purchase,   the public  sampled all the chili they could handle and then  voted for their favorite!  At the end of the day, the chili team with the most votes won a fantastic prize and took the honors of being voted the best chili!   Anyone interested in participating in the chili cook-off in 2021, mark your calendars for January 23, 2021.
