The aroma of award-winning chili will return on Saturday, Jan. 25, to Laishley Park in Punta Gorda. That’s when the 3rd Annual Charlotte Harbor Chili Challenge and Beer Festival is coming to town.

Twenty-five chili teams will set up their chili cooking booths in Laishley Park in an effort to persuade the judges and the general public that their chili is the best. The teams consist of friends, family, service organizations, clubs, nonprofits, businesses, or just about anyone who has the desire to make good, if not great chili.
