Alcohol and fireworks are not permitted.
Come out and be sure to bring your appetite to enjoy live music, kids’ crafts, classic cars, and lots of delicious chili! For a small donation, visitors can sample the firehouse chilis and vote for their favorite. They can vote for their favorite car, too. Local restaurants will have chili for sale and will participate in “people’s choice” and “judges’ choice” competitions. Proceeds from the chili tasting go toward fire protection for The Barnacle.

This event is sponsored by The Barnacle Society, Inc., a volunteer non-profit, citizen-supported organization created to generate public awareness, education, and financial support for the preservation and maintenance of The Barnacle Historic State Park.
