The Dearing Mayfest Committee will hold its 5th Annual Stew, Soup and Chili Cook Off on Feb. 26.
The competition will be held at the Dearing Elementary School cafeteria, and entries will be accepted from 4 to 4:30 p.m. Tickets for tasting will also be available for $5 as long as supplies last.
According to event organizers, entries will be judged on the basis of taste, aroma, color and consistency. Each entry must be at least 4 quarts in volume, and entrants must also bring a hot pad and ladle.
The cook-off is a part of the Dearing Mayfest, and event proceeds will benefit the Good Samaritan House in Dearing.
