Monteagle hosts ‘Fire on the Mountain’

Posted on Thursday, September 12, 2013 at 4:50 pm

Monteagle-The 1st Annual Fire on the Mountain Chili Cook-off & Car Show will be held on September 28th at Hannah Pickett Park located at 16 Dixie Lee Ave, behind Monteagle City Hall. 

The Tracy City Streetrodders will host the Car Show with 100+ cars participating. The car show is from 10:00am-4:00pm CST and is free to the public, but there is a fee to enter your car in the Car Show.

The Chili Cook-off will be open for tasting at noon and the public can sample as many chilies as they want to try for $5. Chili Cook-off teams will represent some of the surrounding area as well as the mountain’s finest restaurants, businesses and community groups, and each will cook up their tastiest batch of chili to be Judged Best Chili or People’s Choice Best Chili.

Each first place will receive $250 and a trophy, and there is still room for you to enter your secret recipe!

There is a rain date set for October 12th. Proceeds will go to support the Mike Price Toys for Tots and the Monteagle Mountain Chamber of Commerce.
