VIDEO: Chilimania attracts big crowd to downtown Edgerton

Chilimania officials in Edgerton are calling this year's 24th annual event a success. Organizer Vicki Morris says 64 teams participated with a variety of colorful booths and antics this weekend. Winners include Gordi Rusch of Edgerton in the "Traditional" category. The winners of the Wisconsin State Championship CASI Sanctioned Chili Cook-off include Dave Boone of Odessa Texas for "Las Aranas" Chili. Mitch Kopnick of Janesville took top CASI honors for Showmanship with the "Chili of Oz". Top salsa honors go to Todd Bequette of Milton. The event was established to call attention to Edgerton's downtown, and near perfect weather resulted in thousands attending Saturday's event. The event has also supported donations totaling close to $100,000 over the years for local charities.
