A mainstay of the Mountain Harvest Festival, the 17th annual Chili Cook-off runs from 5-7 p.m. Friday. For the past nine years the event has been run by the Blue Sage Center for the Arts. This is a highly-competitive event, with the winners determined by the public. Categories and prizes include: Best Green, Best Red, Best Meatless, and Best Exotic, all with a prize of $75; Best In-Town (no prize, the winning restaurant will receive a framed certificate); and the top award, the People's Choice, with a $150 prize.
Tickets can be purchased at the event, and the winners will be announced following the close of the contest.
Delta Volunteer Fire Department (DVFD) will be holding its annual fireworks show at Confluence Park on Wednesday, July 4, having received approval from Delta City Council at the council's June 5 meeting.
The DVFD has 28 volunteers and expects to have eight to 10 firefighters from Cedaredge join them this year.
