Annual Chili Cook Off at Local Oriental NC Hotel

Today’s a great day for a trip to Oriental for a ‘friendly’ chili cookoff competition.  Held at one of the local hotels in Oriental NC, visitors will be able to sample some mighty fine examples of chili and vote for their favorites.  There will be several types of chili to sample, including some rather unique variations – seafood chili, anyone?

The competition should be fierce but fun as the purpose of the chili cook off is to raise funds to support Oriental’s historic Old Theatre.  The Old Theatre hosts an incredible number of reknowned muical artists each year and performances are always sold out well in advance.  They also sponsor a Children’s Theatre Workshop each year which instills confidence and a love for the art of drama in local and visiting children.

Tickets are $7 and available at the event.  Music is provided by the band ‘Restless.’  So come join us and have a great time helping us choose Oriental’s new Dragon Chili Champ!
