The Charity Cookoff, always held the night before the parade and festival will continue. We want to thank our Title Sponsor North Kansas City Hospital for making this event possible. In keeping with the fall theme though, Spooky Snake Saturday Charity Cookoff will be a Chili Cookoff. Normally, Northland Festivals provides steaks for grilling but following the fall theme it will be a chili cookoff. Which Charity has the best Chili? Also which Charity can decorate the best pumpkin? Interesting to note one of the first fund raising events in 1958 for the creation of the North Kansas City Hospital was a chili supper cookoff!
