Minto attempts world record chili feed

Minto residents are hoping to break a world record this weekend -- in the form of chili. The first ever Pot of Chili event starts Friday night and goes through Saturday night. They are hoping to cook one ton of chili, which would make it the largest pot of chili ever cooked.

Minto residents are hoping to break a world record this weekend -- in the form of chili. The first ever Pot of Chili event starts Friday night and goes through Saturday night. They are hoping to cook one ton of chili, which would make it the largest pot of chili ever cooked.

This means enough food for 5,000 people. Organizers say it's not just about chili.

Jennifer Kelley, event organizer: "When we put on something here we get a lot of people to come out and help out. It's a lot of community involvement and we're real excited about that."

All proceeds raised go to local charities. It will be a few months before the official world record results are in.
