The Cannon County Chamber of Commerce is offering a special treat this Halloween.
On Oct. 30 at the Cannon County Senior Center, the chamber will host its annual Chili Bowl Cook-Off.
The contest to see who makes the best chili in Cannon County offers three divisions – businesses, organizations and individuals.
Prizes will be awarded to the winner in each category.
The cost to enter your chili is $10, which also covers the cost of setting up a table to showcase your business.
