This Saturday June 18th 2011, the 4th Annual Huntington Beach Chili at the Beach event will take place on Main St & Pacific Coast Highway. Event takes place from 11am-3pm and benefits CHOC Children’s. Oh yeah and did I mention entrance to the event is free!

While the entrance is free, tasting the chili is not. Chili Tasting tickets at the event are $15, but pre-sale tickets are $10 and are sold at the information booth at Surf City Nights, the Downtown Street Fair and Certified Farmers Market held every Tuesday from 5:00- 9:00pm.

It’s nice to start out the summer with a day at the beach, and what better way to do it than an chili cook-off!

I tried to find a video from last year’s Chili Cook-off, this was the only one I could find. It’s cute and gives you an idea of the Chili at the Beach event in Huntington Beach.
