Hundreds turned out to tingle their tastes buds with homemade chili Sunday at the Best of the Bluegrass Chili Cook Off.
Courtyard Deli's Kevin Ford took home both first and second place in the contest. The winning chili was a traditional recipe, and the second-place finisher was a white chili.
It is the second year for the competition sponsored by the Downtown Lexington Corp. It wrapped up several days of festivities that included the reopening of the Lexington Farmers Market at Cheapside Park.
