Annual Chili and Wing Cook Off to spice up Groundhog festivities

January 26, 2015

PUNXSUTAWNEY — During this season of cold and sometimes freezing weather, if you're looking for a way to warm up, then you'll want to head to the 11th annual Groundhog Day Chili and Hot Wing Cook Off to be held Saturday, Jan. 31.

This year, it will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. at a new location this year — the Gobbler’s Knob building.

Gene Roberts, director of the cook off, said the event is usually held the evening prior to Groundhog Day. However, with the Super Bowl falling on Feb. 1 this year, organizers felt that there would be better attendance on Jan. 31.
