 Chili Cookoff

Saturday, June 11th, 2005 Trinidad Colorado


1st Place Chili Verde, 1st Place Showmanship,

The day started out with beautiful clear blue skies.  This changed later with but even cloudbursts couldn't dampen the spirits for this cookoff.  Friday night there was a very well received cooks party at the Trinidad Brewery.  The cooks with RV's parked, and set up, on the street outside the brewery. The next day the sun shone brightly and the crowds started to gather for the event.  There were venders of every kind, a car show, petting zoo, pony rides etc..  everything you would expect from this long running festival.  The crowd dispersed a bit during a downpour of rain, but quite a few people gathered under the tents, with the cooks.  Rodney Lilly took the honors in the Red category this day.  Steve Lee took Green and Showmanship and Mike Parker took first in the Bean category.  All in all a wonderful day in Southern Colorado!
