Del Mar Rotary Club’s Chili & Quakers Challenge to be held Oct. 19

The Rotary Club of Del Mar’s annual Chili & Quakers Challenge will be held on Saturday, Oct. 19, from 12-3 p.m. at Powerhouse Park in Del Mar.

The club is hoping to raise over $20,000 for local and international charitable efforts.
For attendees, the event promises fun for everyone with the opportunity to sample a variety of chili made by Del Mar restaurants, residents, charities, and even our local fire-firefighters as they compete to create the best chili in the cook-off. From Foxy Turkey Chili to vegetarian delights to buffalo meat concoctions, you’ll have the chance to vote for your favorite recipe.

And there is no fee to come have a good time, soak up the sun and participate in family activities like face painting donated by Pinky’s Big Top Circus and wild hair designs by Vickie Lavanty Hair Salon and plenty of games for the kids. For the adults, a beer and wine garden will be roped off for sipping and socializing along the beautiful Del Mar coastline.

The highlight of the day will be the Ducky Derby when over 2,000 rubber ducks will ride the waves and be corralled ashore by the Del Mar Lifeguards. Each duck is numbered and corresponds to a ticket you may purchase to win. Buy as many ducks as you like. The first “quackers” to swim to shore will win prizes for their owners. Cash prizes of $1,000 and $500 go to the first and second place ducks, and $100 for third to seventh. Buy a duck or cheer one on to shore!
