Chili cook-off in Old North Sac -- and it's free

On Saturday, Del Paso Boulevard promises to be the culinary center of Sacramento, as contestants will be stirring the pot at the Old North Sacramento Chili Cook-off.

The event runs from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Renaissance Square Building lot at 1219 Del Paso Boulevard. Admission is free. There will also be free hot dogs and free chili. And as the event promotional poster says, "Hint: creat your own chili dog!" We're told there are 11 competitors lined up, so that could make for many delicious variations

A celebrity panel of judges has been lined up, including trick roper James Barrera. There will be live music by Blusion.

Afterward, the fun continues just across the street, where The Spazmatics will be in concert. Those who attend the cook-off can receive $5 off the ticket price to the concert, which is restricted to adults 21 and over.
