Chili and Brews at Waterville Valley

September 25, 2018

Local chefs are perfecting their chili recipes for the 20th annual Chili Challenge on Saturday, Sept. 29, from 12-4 p.m. in Waterville Valley’s Town Square. Sampling tickets/ballots will go on sale in the Square starting at 11 a.m. – $7.50 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. Chili sampling will start at noon. Hint: Chili supplies are limited, so get here early and get eating, then vote for the best chili. 

What’s the best accompaniment for chili?  Beer.  Sample craft beers in the Square from 12-3 p.m.  

What’s the best accompaniment for chili and beer?  Music.  The Uncle Steve Band will perform from the gazebo stage in Town Square from 12-3 p.m. 

What’s the best way to burn off the beer and chili calories (besides dancing to the Uncle Steve Band)?  Take a hike, play tennis, hit the  links for a round of golf, paddle around Corcoran Pond, bike the valley trails, ride the chairlift and hike to the Cascades, play disc golf, take a swim at the Athletic Club.  The weekend forecast is looking partly sunny, cool and crisp. Leaves are starting to turn red and orange.  It’s going to be another great weekend to spend in Waterville Valley.
