The aroma of delicious chili will be in the air as the public enjoys festivities that begin at 9am. There will be music, games, crafts, food vendors, a silent auction, raffle, drawings and activities for kids. Young ladies ages 7-17 will compete in the Little Miss Ladies State Championship. Attendees will also be able to purchase a bowl of Texas Ladies’ Chili from Boy Scout Troop 107.
