Chili cook-off becomes month-long competition

North Country Chili Cook-Off

WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - The North Country Chili Cook-Off is usually a one-day event in February at the Dulles State Office Building in Watertown.

But this year, says the Volunteer Transportation Center’s Jeremiah Papineau, it’s going to be all month long.

Restaurants in Jefferson, Lewis, and St. Lawrence counties can feature their chili throughout February and people can vote for their favorites.

Eateries have until December 31 to sign up for the competition.
