Five Alarm & Festival Chili Cook-Off

Toss on a sweater for a  "chili" day in downtown Hampton! The Five-Alarm Festival returns to  Carousel Park complete with food vendors, fire safety demonstrations,  children's activities, exhibitors, and more. The event will provide  valuable fire and life safety information in a fun and delicious  atmosphere.

Teams will put their secret chili recipes to the test beginning at  noon with a public cook-off lasting until 2:30 p.m. Festival attendees  can purchase tickets for 50 cents each that will entitle them to chili  samples (1 ticket each). Prizes will be awarded based on the decisions  of the judges.

Throughout the day, vendors will be distributing valuable safety  information. Children will want to have their face painted and enjoy  make-and-take activities in the festival's designated craft section.

In addition to chili, food vendors will be on site selling hot dogs  and hamburgers. Proceeds from chili and food sales will be used for fire  prevention and public education.
