Fall Chili Cook-off scheduled

Plans are already underway for this fall’s Wauseon Chili Cook-Off Family Fest.

The city will host the event Saturday, Sept. 24, from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. in the Fulton Street downtown area.

In addition to sampling chili from cook-off competitors, visitors can receive a free health screening from the Fulton County Health Center. And free fingerprinting of children will be available, as well as a Wauseon Fire Department safety program.

Children will be treated to a free train ride, inflatables, and face painting, and can meet and greet Ronald McDonald.

There will also be crafters, vendors, food, entertainment and hourly raffles.
