sure that they have their annual Chili-Cook-Off anymore now...
Though the Chil-E Fest as it used to be was my annual summer amusement fun I could always depend on, when it comes to amusement parks and that nostalgic sensation that tickles your heart when you think of it - that belongs to Enchanted Forest Water Safari.
