13th Annual Keyport Country Jamboree and Chili Contest

We visited the 13th Annual Keyport Country Jamboree and Chili Contest today and had a wonderful time. The weather drew great crowds to vendors and amusements all along West Front Street. I even noticed a skateboarding competition going on down by the wharf.

People visited a dozen restaurants in town to sample their chili and pick the winner. I favored the chili offered by Lenora's Cafe, but Drew's Bayshore Bistro, Trinity Restaurant, and Papa Ganache also had wonderful offerings.

The whole thing goes on again on Sunday. I encourage you to visit.

Scarlett was particularly impressive with her scaling of the rock wall.
