The Alton Main Street organization is taking on the leadership of the Chili Cook-Off, which is coming up in a little less than a month.  On October 5th, the downtown area of 3rd Street is expected to be filled with chili conniseurs.  The event will be held in the parking lot between New Frontiers Furnishings and Paul Lauschke Real Estate.

Alton Main Street Executive Director Sara McGibany says the cook-off will be held between noon and 3pm.

McGibany also says there will be a fall festival the following day under the big top in the same parking lot featuring craft beer and wine tasting as well as a local art show.  If you would like more information, call 463-1016.
