The Kickin’ Chicken & Chili Festival, delayed by a rainy night in October, played out Friday night in downtown Florence as several chefs and restaurants put their chicken wings and chili up in competition.
The annual event is a key fundraiser for the Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce.
This year’s winners in the wing category were Mac’s BBQ Kitchen which took top honors, followed by Duke Energy’s team, Ashley’s Yummy Tummy at third.
In the chili competition Back Porch BBQ took top honors followed by Ashley’s Yummy Tummy.
The event was well attended for the rescheduled Festival with approximately 1,200 pounds of wings sold.
The Chamber wants to thank the Inland Band and all the Chamber Ambassadors that helped with the project, and a very special thanks to Hannah Davis and the Downtown Development team.
This year’s event was made possible by Raines Co. and Synergi Partners along with support from Willcox, Buyck & Williams, Victors, South Carolina Federal Credit Union, MPD Electric Cooperative, Florence Downtown Development Corp. and the City of Florence.
