The air might be a little nippy by Oct. 21, but you can bet the entries in Yakima's 14th annual Chili Cookoff won't be.

Advance tickets are available now at this link or at the Coffee Shoppe, 3311 W. Nob Hill Blvd. Admission is $15 now, but the price goes up to $20 the day of the event. (Kids 5 and younger get in free, though.) Your ticket is good for unlimited chili, cornbread, dessert and a beverage.

The event -- which includes a silent auction, a raffle and activities for kids -- runs from 4-8 p.m. at the Yakima Armory, 26th and Ahtanum.

Proceeds benefit the Yakima Valley Pet Rescue and Adoption Center.
