Thanks to all of the teams who came out to compete for the prized Chili Trophy and the $1,000 grand prize provided by Magnolia State Bank.

“You guys made this year’s cook-off the best so far! It’s people like you that are helping Laurel to quicken back to life. I know everyone can’t win first place with their chili, but the ultimate winner – The City Beautiful, Laurel – is the sole purpose for this and the other events held in historic downtown. (You are all winners in my book!)

Now if you thought the wind this week-end almost blew you off your feet just wait till you findout what is going to go down at next year’s Magnolia State Bank’s 5th Annual Chili cook off. IT’S GONNA BLOW YOU AWAY. We never thought 5 years ago that we would have to cap the entries but you may want to sign up early.

Thanks again and looking forward to next year!!”
