This morning Bryson City is buzzing. Tourists and locals alike are being lured in by the smell of homemade chili. The Swain County Chamber of Commerce is hosting its 24th annual chili cook off. Starting at 11am today and continuing on until 3pm or the chili is gone. Some come taste some of the best and don’t forget to cast your vote for the People’s Choice Awards! The festival style event will be taking place right behind the Great Smoky Mtn Railroad depot. Live music will be provided by local favorites, The Freight Hoppers. We’re heading down there now. Hope to see you there.
