East Falls’ annual chili cook-off is coming to Mifflin Elementary on Friday, March 14 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

This year’s participants include Diane Floyd of Meal Makers, Peicha Chang of Falls Flowers and the Philly Chili Girls. Other participants include the Couch Tomato, Epicure Cafe, Fiorino, Philadelphia University and the Trolley Car Cafe, among others. 

Chilis will be judged in four categories — meat, veggie, people’s choice and side dish. 

Entrance to the cook-off is free. Anyone looking to fill up on varieties can pay $15 per person (or $25 for two people) in advance or $20 per person ($30 for two people) at the door.

Proceeds from the event will go toward the East Falls Community Council and Mifflin Elementary.
