Beyond the chili - the day will include retail and craft vendors on the Greenway, free activities for children, live music and two new beer gardens. Bring your Musikfest Mug for a special Mug Refill! And don't forget to stop by the Cops 'n' Kids Celebration of Reading at Northampton Community College and Homebase Skateshop's hot pepper eating contest - where only the strong survive! Join Southside Arts District on the SouthSide's Greenway as they say goodbye to old man winter and hello to spring!
