Serving Up Chili And Fun For 32 Years

CREATED Feb. 16, 2013

Not only do people go for the chili, but they go to see the wild costumes and demonstrations chili cooks put on.

The 32nd Annual Sertoma Chili Cook Off is today from 11 to 5 at the Springfield Expo Center on St. Louis Street.

Some 70 teams are competing this year.

Organizers say all money raised stays here to help local charities.

The Boys and Girls Club of Springfield, Good Samaritans Boys Ranch, CASA, Child Advocacy Center, Children's Smile Center and Champion Athletes are those charities.
