Quartzsite Chili Cookoff planned for February 26th

Quartzsite, AZ - Rumors buzzed around town, after incomplete information was printed in a new publication about the Annual Chili Cook Off.

Quartzsite Town Council Member, Jerry Lukkasson, explained at the Town Hall meeting yesterday that the Quartzsite Chili Cookoff is still on...keeping the same date of Saturday, February 26, 2011, with a new look and new venue! The Quartzsite Business Chamber of Commerce had cancelled their annual "It's Chili in Quartzsite" when challenges arose with the La Paz County Health Department.

The Arizona Centennial Committee of Quartzsite will sponsor the Cook Off this year, with cooperation from the Business Chamber. The Quartzsite Chili Cookoff will take place at the Town Park, on N. Plymouth. Lukkasson expressed his hopes that the new "Snack Shack" at the park would be completed by then, to help with issues raised by the health department.

So get your favorite chili recipies ready and plan on a wonderful family event at the park on Saturday, February 26th!

Watch for more information in the next issue of the Desert Messenger on Wed. Jan. 5, 2011.
