The Third Annual Great Claiborne County Chili Cook-off, Crafts and Yard Sale is Oct. 12 from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the Tazewell Municipal Park. There will be yard sale vendors, children’s activities, entertainment and chili competitors vying for your vote as the best chili in Claiborne County. Here, tourism director Carl Nichols hangs a sign for the event. Many more vendors and chili competitors are needed, he said. Any individual, business, church or school group, or community organization is invited to participate as a chili competitor, craft vendor, yard sale vendor, information vendor or food vendor. The event is sponsored by the Claiborne County Tourism Commission. For more information or to register, go to www.claibornecounty.com under “events” or call 865-585-7386.
