WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – There were plenty of good eats Saturday afternoon at the Wichita Wagonmasters Downtown Chili Cookoff.
KSN News was there as folks gathered to sample chili.
Event organizers said they had a record number of teams this year and an estimated 10,000 attendees.
“This is the most fun event each year. It’s just amazing because the Wagonmasters get to raise this money with this event, and we get to give it back to the community, and it’s what we love to do. So the more people we get, the more we can give back,” said Bill Ramsey, Wichita Wagonmasters.
The winner of the chili pepper eating contest ate 11 peppers in just over two minutes.
