The Excelsior Springs Community Chili cook off will take place today.  It will be held at The Montgomery Venue from 11 am to 2 pm.

“This is a local event for our city, our police department, our fire department and businesses, just some friendly competition,” says Executive Director of the Downtown Excelsior Partnership, Lindsey Baxter.  “Trophies will be given to the winners.  The grand prize winner will be Marshall of the Mardi-Gras Irish-fest Parade.”

Everyone is invited to come down and experience the event or just hang out.  There will be a select Chili that will be available for purchase.
