2014 Annual Broadway Bash Chili Cook-Off Great Success

The sun shone on the 2014 Annual Broadway Bash Chili Cook-Off on Saturday, November 8, hosted by the Natchez Rotary Club to benefit Natchez Children’s Home Services. Cooking teams from Mississippi and Louisiana arrived early in the morning to cook pots of delicious chili and compete for prizes and glory. The judges had a difficult task in selecting winners among the fantastic chilies submitted.

A silent auction, craft beer, children’s activities, root beer floats, the raffle of a Millennium deer stand, handmade chili bowls and mugs by potter Tom Hughes, and the sale of numerous donated items added to the festivities.

Pictured above are representatives of the winners of the Judges Awards. First prize for Best Chili went to the Adams County Sheriff's Office ($300), second prize to the James Gang ($200), and third prize to the Krewe of Phoenix ($100). The Krewe of Phoenix also won the People's Choice and Best Booth Awards.

Our judges were Calvin Butler, Michael Mascagni, Father Louis Sklar, Eddie Walker and George Ward.
