This year, something new has been added to the event: the Great Chili Cook-Off. The plungers start hitting the water at noon, and soon after the last brave soul scampers back out of the lake, the Great Chili Cook-Off begins at the Central Fire Station, 77 North Seventh Street. If you make chili that gets rave reviews, and you want to increase its fan base, consider providing a pot of it for the Great Chili Cook-Off. Information on doing so is also available here.
