It was flavour-filled event for the chili lovers who flocked to the 19th annual Cloverdale Chili Cook-off, lining up in droves to sample, and judge, entries Friday at Clover Square Village.

The contest was divided into professional and amateur categories for the first time, with Cloverdale Legion Branch 6 picking up the top honours in the pro division with its DJ Chili, followed by Cloverdale-Langley City MP John Aldag/Options in second spot with Raising the Roof Chili, and Rusty’s Pub in third with their Tennessee Fire Jack Daniels Chili.

Cloverdale Black Belt Academy picked up the top trophy in the amateur division for their Kick Butt Chili, followed by Brook Mattick for Brook’s Chili, and Northwood Inspections in third place with Tastes Like Home chili.

One of the Express Clydesdales – featured at the 70th annual Cloverdale Rodeo – was on hand, adding some equine star power to the proceedings, and there were crafts and face painting for children.

The annual contest is presented by Clover Square Village in partnership with the Cloverdale BIA and the Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce.
