16th Annual Fire and Police Chili Cook Off is Huge Success
The Greater Milwaukee Fire and Police Pipes and Drums is now digesting the huge success of its annual chili cook off fundraiser.
Several hundred turned out at the new location of the Knights of Columbus in West Allis.
The new location was necessary because of the popularity of the event and the need for more space to accommodate the competitors.
There were ten chili entrants competing for a trophy and bragging rights in several categories.
Here are the winners as announced on the Pipes and Drums Face book page:
Another year, new venue, and continued success! Thank you to those who stopped and taste tested the Chili!
