Brookhaven is scheduled to host its 4th annual Chili Cook Off on Oct. 10.

The event will be held in Brookhaven Park this year and more than 75 chili cooks – amateur and professional – are expected to compete for bragging rights, medals and prizes the organizers say are valued at more than $2,500.

Tasting spoons will be offered to the public for $10 in advance and $15 at the door. A portion of the festival’s proceeds will go to Releash Atlanta, an organization that provides adoption support to metro Atlanta pet rescue groups and shelters.
