Chili, Color and Football on Saturday

ChiliFest 2014, the Color Run and Marshall versus Rhode Island promise a busy Saturday, Sept. 6 for downtown Huntington. The Color Run starts at 8 a.m. and the ChilliFest begins at 11 a.m. This will be the 31st anniversary of ChillFest, having started in 1983 in Ritter Park, filled Fourth Avenue, and now held at Pullman Square. Chili sample tickets are $1.00 or six for $5.00.

ChilliFest benefits Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Tri-State and over $500,000 has been raised over the years to benefit the charities.
