There will be live music at the annual festival and the adorable the Little Miss Chili Pepper & Mr. Hot Stuff competition. Any little boys or girls interested should apply by October 13, 2008. The children will be onstage answering questions and have the option to display a talent if desired. Ages 3 to 6 may enter. The competition is always a crowd pleaser and lots of fun! First place winners win a $25 savings bond and ride in the Christmas Parade representing the Main Street Merchants.
And of course, there will be tons of chowder and chili to eat! Don’t worry, hamburgers hot dogs and ice cream will be for sale as well.
