      EVENT DETAILS
      Gatlinburg's 26th Annual Winter Magic Kickoff & Chili Cookoff

      The 26th Annual Winter Magic Kickoff & Chili Cookoff is on the downtown Parkway from 5-8 p.m. on Wednesday, November 11. The event features the ceremonial lighting of more than 3 million lights that make Gatlinburg a winter wonderland. There are animated displays throughout the city and the Great Smoky Arts and Crafts Community, some as much as 40 feet tall.     Entertainment will be provided by the Ladies for Liberty, a singing group dedicated to performing the Andrews Sisters style of music.  Those attending are encouraged to vote for their favorite chili. These votes will be tallied to award the coveted People’s Choice Award to the most popular chili. A panel of judges will cast their votes for other awards, including: Best Booth and Best Chili. Excitement will really heat up with the popular hot-chili eating contest during the event. Contestants will consume chili with increasing levels of heat as the competition progresses.
