The seventh Annual Sarepta Christmas Festival with Chili Cook-Off was held on Dec. 5 in the Community Park area on Vines Street in Sarepta. This Chili Cook-Off was sanctioned by the Chili Appreciation Society International and there were three World Champions participating in this Sarepta competition. 20 individuals judged each entry on aroma, consistency, red color, taste, and aftertaste. These characteristics were scored and tabulated by the CASI officials.
