Tucson Firefighters Chili Cook-off

November 1, 2013 , ,

I attended the anual chili cook off to support our local firefighters union. Each station designs a booth and makes a chili dish. The chili is judged by a panel, and the booth design is judged by popular Facebook vote.  The annual event is a really fun way to meet locals and enjoy time downtown.  The creativity of the booth design and the costumes always amuse.  This year the Drexel Heights Station outdid themselves with a Duck Dynasty theme.  I took my calendar with me and was able to find four of the guys to give me autographs on their pictures.  They serve beer and play live music, but it differs from other community events in that the firefighters union uses all the proceeds to adopt families in need to help them.  We don’t have the opportunity to see our firefighters all together at the same time very often.  Seeing them enjoy themselves so much and serve the community too is a blast.  We love our firefighters in Tucson.  They keep us safe and represent the spirit of the town in a friendly and creative way.  I bought a tee shirt for Bob which he will like a lot, and an apron for myself, to remind me not to burn down the house.
