Youngsville Sports Complex is the location for the Cajun Chili Fest, a chili cook-off that benefits Family Promise of Acadiana on March 17 from 11 am - 3 pm.

The event is (of course) open to the public, hosted by LA CASI, and it will feature lots of fun for the kids and great chili for you to sample! There will be games, raffles, refreshments and a kid's zone and various vendors on site.

The entry fee for the cook-off is only $25 per 3-person team, and for those wanting to attend, it's only $5 per person for the all-you-care-to-sample experience. Kids 10 and under get in free!
