Parktoberfest03WARSAW – The Sixth annual Parktoberfest raised $1,400 for the River View Community Park.

The event was held Oct. 24 at the park and featured activities for kids, food and a chili cook-off.

There were 10 entries in the chili cook-off and at least two of them were pretty hot according to Gannon Unger and Caleb Fischer who helped serve chili soups made by Corey and Jesse Fischer. Caleb pointed out that Jesse had a waiver he asked people to sign before trying his chili. The cook-off also was a family affair for Betty and Larry Wright. They served up chili alongside their son Lance and his wife Brandie, who were sponsored by Jason Hamilton’s Lazy River Tavern & Drive Thru. “When I started my business last year I knew I wanted to give back to the community,” Hamilton said.


Winners of the chili cook-off were: Judge’s Choice Champion – Michael Varns; runner-up – Steve Prosek; People’s Choice Champion – Evan Fischer; runner-up – Kathy Spang.
