Event Photography: Tucson Firefighters Chili Cookoff

How about a nice, warm bowl of chili for a good cause? And, better yet, cooked and served with a smile by local firefighters?

At last Friday’s Tucson Firefighters Chili Cookoff, thousands of gallons of the good stuff were available. Firefighters from various departments set up booths to sell dollar-a-bowl chili, with the proceeds going to benefit the Tucson Firefighters Adopt-a-Family program. As one firefighter told me, the true value of the event was in giving back to the community while having a good time.

Speaking of good times, here’s the Northwest Fire District’s fraternity house chili booth…

No, these kids were not flattened by flaming bowls of chili. They were participating in the breakdancing contest…

How about some smoking hot blues to go with that chili? Here’s Clark Engelbert of CrossCut Saw
