Community Care Chili Cookoff offering residents a chance to warm up on a snow day

In the words of Community Care's Executive Director " the chili cookoff is a go, no sleet no rain snow can interrupt the chili cookoff."

Betty Lou Souter says the annual event gets underway this morning at 11 in downtown St. Catharines Market Square.

Twelve local cooks will be vying for top honours today.

Souter says there will be something for everyone, from vegan chili to hot, hot, hot.
