Last Chance to guess rainfall as locals offer chili, beer and more Friday night

Guessing how much rain will fall through the end of the year in Petersburg could be a lucrative activity. That’s if you enter and win the Petersburg Chamber of Commerce’s first annual rain classic. The contestant with the closest guess gets half the cash from ticket sales. Tickets are on sale through this Friday night when the Chamber holds its annual Devil’s Thumb Chili Feed and Brewfest where local amateur cooks, brewmasters and winemakers get to share their creations with the community.

To find out more about the rain classic as well as the chili feed and brewfest, Matt Lichtenstein spoke with chamber board member Dave Kennsinger.

Tickets to the Devil’s Thumb Chili Feed and Brewfest cost ten dollars and that includes one rain classic ticket. The doors open for the general public at six in the Sons of Norway Hall Friday but festival participants are asked to bring in their creations a half hour earlier. Meanwhile, the two dollar rain classic tickets can also be purchased through Friday at the Chamber of Commerce office, the Petersburg Pilot, Coastal Cold Storage, and Java Hus.
