The 11th annual Firefighters’ Chili Challenge, sponsored by the City of Akron, will take place at Lock 3 on Friday, January 20 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. or until the chili runs out!

Each year, Akron firefighters issue the challenge to see who can create the best chili, which is served to Downtown employees and visitors. Tickets are $10 for six samples of chili and a beverage. Individual chili samples are available for $1.50. Beverages are also available for $2. All proceeds benefit Akron Children’s Hospital Burn Institute.

The 2017 competitors include the Akron Fire Department, The Akron Police Department, the City of Akron Human Resources Department, ARCADIS, Cleveland Clinic Akron General Hospital and Hattie Larlham. Teams will be competing for Judge’s Choice and People’s Choice Awards.
