Local musicians will provide live entertainment.  There will also be a chili dog eating contest.  Proceeds will benefit the Sparrow Foundation, Impression 5 Science Center and the H.O.P.E. Scholarship Program.

Tickets for the 21st annual BWL Chili Cook-off are available at the gate, $10 for adults and $5 for kids 6-12.  Here's more information from the Lansing State Journal.
