“Last year’s Homecoming Chili Cook-Off was a great success, and Western is always excited to partner with local businesses. It was such a great way for community members, businesses, and the College to work together for a fun day out on the town. We are looking forward to this year’s event and trying more delicious chili,” Kimberly Emerson, director of student marketing and communications at Western, said.

Western encourages community members to sample chili and stroll around Downtown Rock Springs and support local businesses.

There will be a raffle for residents to win prizes as well. The homecoming basketball games will take place in the Rushmore Gym immediately following the event.
