"Harris Hot House Chili Cook-off N Guac-a Thon 2008"
We were invited a few times to come to Phelan CA. Our friends like to come here once a year for this Chili Cook off. Actually its Chilli, Guacamole and Salsa and Jello-shots competition.
I dont know why we had never come before but we had alot of fun!
It is held a someones house. They have a large plot of land and people come from everywhere, pitch a tent and start making some chili. This year there were over 80 people here but on other years it can get as big as 250 - 300 people here.
To get in is free, just park the car and pitch a tent somewhere where there is space available. It is actually very well organized. At the welcome booth you can buy a $10 tshirt if you want. If you want ti enter into the contest its $10 also.
The booze is free and so is the food! You cant beat that!
We just came up for the day not really knowing what to expect. All I knew was that my husbands friend James kept bugging us to get down here. Its about 1 hour 15 min from LA.
