  • A cardboard box-sled derby will start at 11:30pm on the hill at the back of Sandwich Elementary School. Bring a sled to enjoy the hill once the sled derby is finished.

Groups and help from friends and parents allowed and encouraged. Feel free to browse the internet to get some inspired ideas for this event.  Helmets Required! 
  • The chili cook-off will take place in Sandwich Elementary School gym 11:00-1:30pm. There are lots of talented chefs in our community, we encourage you to all to bring your best pot of chili!  You can drop chili off in the school any time between 10:00 - 10:55am.  Please bring your chili in a crock pot so it will stay warm throughout the contest, and we ask that you provide a ladle or serving spoon. We will provide everything else.  We are hoping for new and repeat entrants!
    Don’t have time or a recipe to prepare, no worries, come eat some chili and vote for your favorite! 
    The Winner gets bragging rights for a year, and their photo with our one-of-a-kind Chili Cook-off Trophy!
