The Crowsnest Pass Public Art Gallery was home to a couple of events, the Frying Pan Toss and the Chili Bowl Festival.
The Frying Pan Toss started at 10 a.m. and involved throwing, you guessed it, frying pans. The one closest to the peg would win a prize with donations going to the food bank.
There was a peg for youth and adults to throw at, but just inside the building was a wonderful chance to warm up with some food.
Starting at 11 a.m. was the Chili Bowl Festival. The festival featured an incredibly large supply of bowls provided by the Pass Pottery Club for the event.
When the doors opened, the line extended well outside the gallery, with many residents excited to pick a bowl and eat some homemade chili.
For $20 you got to pick a handcrafted bowl to have your chili in, along with a cookie and a bun.
There were six types of chili to choose from along with a variety of cookies that included a large amount of ginger snaps.
Seating was set up throughout the gallery for attendees to eat their bowl of chili. Refreshments were also provided with coffee and water being available.
After finishing your food, they provided newspaper for wrapping the new bowl for safe transportation. Signs were placed around the gallery notifying anyone getting the chili that it was not prepared in a professional environment.
