Returning for the third year, Pleasant Heads, the popular country-modern band from Reno, will also entertain.

The O. K. Chorale, the menand#8217;s barbershop group, specializing in harmony, comedy and generally great entertainment, will open the show.

There will also be a special appearance by The Railroad Regulators.

No festival would be complete without a full range of activities for the kids, from face painting to the Bouncy House, everyone will enjoy a day of family fun.

Tickets for unlimited chili tasting are $10 for adults and free for children under 12 and are available from the Truckee Donner Chamber in the old Depot, any Sunrise Rotarian and on the event Web site, http://www.TruckeeChiliCookoff.org.
