The Chili Cook-Off returns to downtown Alton in a few weeks.   Alton Main Street assumed the leadership of the event in 2013, and this year, the event will be held from noon - 3pm on Saturday, October 18th in the parking lot between New Frontiers Furnishings and Paul Lauschke Real Estate, and will be part of a Fall Festival. 

There will be prizes awarded in several categories, as well as the coveted "People's Choice" award.  Main Street Executive Director Sara McGibany says entries are already coming in.
