2022 Painesville Community Chili Cook Off Winners

On Saturday, September 24, Painesville Recreation hosted their annual Painesville Community Chili Cook Off in Painesville Square. It was a great fall day for some chili and college football!  A special thank you to Chili's Fire Pit and Painesville Community Improvement Corporation (PCIC) for sponsoring, the parks crew for set up and tear down, and Painesville Electric for helping keep all those crockpots cooking.


Congratulations to all our winners! We can't wait to see what everyone cooks up for next year.
