The 7th Annual Okotoks Chili Fest was an event for all ages and tastebuds!

Streets were filled with more than just chili; from vendors to linedancers this event had it all.

There was 14 teams competing and 3 awards up for grabs including judge's choice, peoples' choice and the theme. The winning teams were: The Lions Club, Kinsmen Group and iDental.

I was able to speak with a few of the chili teams and learned that the flavours of chili varied from mom's classic, texmex, to spicy vegetarian.
