Thank you Laurel for a fabulous Chili Cook Off!

With 28 enthusiastic teams competing and almost 3,000 chili-loving attendees coming out to taste their wares, the 6th Annual Magnolia State Bank Chili Cook Off was our best cook off event yet!

The winner of the Traditional Category grand prize was Red Hot Chili Preppers.

Our Homestyle Category winner was Southern Hospitality who stood a head above the competition and came out on top.
