Saturday promises to be crisp, cool and sunny, and what better way to spend it than watching a bunch of firefighters go toe to toe in the "1st Annual Firefighter Chili Cook Off" from noon to 4 p.m.

The firefighters are from Sac Metro, Sac City, Folsom, Roseville and Consumnes. The event will feature celebrity judges, October 8 - The 1st Annual Firefighter Chili Cook Off.

This looks the start of something big. It's no secret that firefighters take their cooking very seriously and there are plenty of talented firehouse cooks around town. Indeed, I've heard from several of them, active and retired, in recent years. So this event, complete with celebrity judges, promises to be highly competitive -- and highly delicious.

The cookoff takes place at Safetyville, Attendance is $5, and kids 8 and under get in free. There will also be fire demonstrations, interactive events, door prizes and raffles.
