      Firefighter Chili Cook Off

        The Retired Firefighters of Palm Beach County hosted
      their Firefighter Chili Cook Off on Saturday, Feb. 5 at
      Abacoa Amphitheater. Decorated chili booths represented
      firefighters from local departments, restaurants, hospitals,
      and organizations. It was the responsibility of the celebrity
      judges to finally determine the “best” chili and “theme”
      booths. This event was a huge success and Abacoa proved
      to be the perfect secure venue to gather the family for cold
      drinks, hot chili, and live music.
