If you’re a fan of delicious chili and classic cars, then the fourth annual Chili Cook-Off and Car Show at Century 21 Select Real Estate in Lincoln is for you. 

Saturday’s event, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., features classic rods and relics, a Neighborhood Electronic Vehicles showcase and the chili cook-off.

Also featured is a kids’ zone and live music from bands such as Yesterday’s News, Four Barrel, The Kick-N-60’s, Lincoln Highway, Dudley and the Doo Rights, and The Back Porch Flyers. 

In addition to homemade chili from 15 local contestants, patrons can also enjoy fully-loaded hot dogs and hamburgers. 

Entries for the chili cook-off, NEV and car show costs $10 and all event proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. 

Saturday’s annual event is at Century 21 Select Real Estate’s parking lot at 801 Sterling Parkway, Suite 100.

Century 21 Select and affiliate companies, including Stanford Mortgage, have raised more than $40,000 for Relay for Life the past five years.

Relay for Life is a family-oriented community event that has teams walking for 24 hours, honoring and supporting those who have been affected by cancer in some way.
