Don’t let parking keep you away! Be creative: Ride your bike, take a cab, hitchhike, park at Spanish Landing and walk, skate, ride your scooter, or valet parking at the Hilton.

Time: Chili cooks should arrive by 3:30pm. Judges should start to arrive at 4:00pm for the 5:00pm “Chili on the Bay cook-off”.

What to bring: Warm clothes, Beverages of your choice, lawn chairs, blankets, a cheerful attitude, and a empty stomach! A public restroom is conveniently located within walking distance from our location.

Hope to see ya at the Parade of Lights
