You be the judge — who makes best chili?

Break out your tasting spoons and head over to the 17th annual Chili Chowder Cook Off.

The event is set from 3 to 7 p.m. Nov. 10 at the Camano Center. Tickets are $10 for 10 tastes, and beer and wine is available to buy.

There will be raffles, give-aways, live music and a live art auction at 5:30 p.m.
