BELLINGHAM – St. Blaise Church will hold its annual Harvest Fair on Saturday, Oct. 20, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the parish hall, 1158 South Main St.
The annual fair will once again feature Grandma’s Attic, games, raffles, tasty treats, a 50/50 cash raffle and the themed decorator “Basket Game.” Available for purchase at the Fair will be tickets for the Money Raffle and Lottery Tree Raffle, both drawings to be held on Sunday, Nov. 25th, in the parish hall following 10 a.m. Mass. Winners need not be present.
New this year, is a Chili Cook-Off, to take place on the following day, Sunday, Oct. 21, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., again in the parish hall. A registration form, available from the parish office, must be completed and submitted prior to the Cook-Off. Entrants should bring a 6-quart crock pot of heated chili to the parish hall by 10:30 a.m., along with a copy of the recipe. Space is limited to the first 15 registrants. Chefs will not be allowed to serve their own chili, and all taste testing will be conducted blind. Come taste and cast your vote for the best chili in three categories: Best Tasting, Hottest, and Best Non-Traditional. A cost of $5 to taste all entries, with a $20 family max, will apply. To enter your tried and true family favorite chili, email your request for a registration form to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
