The Fredericktown Fire Department and friends play a game of "Human Foosball" along the pathway outside the high school football stadium before the Blackcats' game against North County. If you haven't seen this before, it can be very funny. They will also be playing and accepting teams to play Saturday at the Fredericktown Fire Department Chili Cook-off on East Main Street.

The Fredericktown Fire Department is hosting its sixth annual chili cook-off Oct. 25, on East Main Street in Fredericktown

The cook-off helps the department to help raise money for training and equipment.

Teams are asked to make a minimum of five gallons of chili, which must be cooked on-site, the day of the cook-off. Cooking begins at 8:30 a.m.

Wrist bands and tickets can be purchased at 11 a.m. and public chili sampling begins at 11:30. People's Choice voting ends at 1:45 p.m.

Prizes will be awarded for first, second, and third place, People's Choice, and Best Site. The fire department will also be cooking chili for public consumption, but will not be judged.

Games and face painting begin at 10 a.m. Elmo will be teaching fire safety, and the fire department and family members will be providing entertainment throughout the day. There will be a jalapeno eating contest at 2 p.m., and awards will be presented at 2:30.

For more information call John or Missy Clark at 783-3391 or 783-5048.
