November 10 is the date of this year’s Gatlinburg Winter Magic Kickoff and concurrent Chili Cookoff.   This event has been aptly named one of winter’s “Top 20 Events” by the Southeast Tourism Society.  We are going to gather between lights #6 & #8 on the Parkway (near Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies) from 5-8 p.m. for live entertainment, lot’s of warm chili from newcomers and ‘chili’ vets, and the much anticipated turning on of millions of lights that transforms Gatlinburg into a spectacular winter wonderland!

More than 20 businesses and organizations will be cooking up “mild to fired” chili and vying for your vote!  Purchase a ticket to receive a spoon and a ballot and sample to your heart’s content.   Then, can cast your vote for the People’s Choice award, and category awards including best apron design, booth presentation and unique chili name.
