The entry fee is $10, and people can enter one or both categories. Anyone interested in participating must register by Friday by calling the town hall at 812-793-2311.

Chili and salsa should be cooked in advance, and participants must be set up by 5 p.m.

Public tasting and voting will start at 5:30 p.m. It will cost $5 to taste all chili and salsa during the event.
