Businesses and organizations will prepare chili, which then be tasted by the judges and winners named.

Tickets for the event, which serves as a fundraiser for the agency, get the public a chance to sample the wares as well and cost $2 for those 19 and older, $1 for ages 11-18, while children 10 and under get in for free.

In addition to the chili, there will be an art show, a craft and vendor fair, family activities, raffle prizes, a cake walk and more.

A sensitive Easter Egg hunt, which LCDD typically offers on a separate date, will take place on site, with ages 10 and under at 11:30 a.m. and 11 and older at 12:30 p.m.

Open Door School is located at 606 Carlton Davidson Lane in Coal Grove.
