The sights and sounds of the season filled the streets of downtown Statesboro Dec. 6 during this year's Holiday Celebration.
A F1RST Friday event, the annual celebration featured a Christmas parade, live music and photos with Santa Claus, as well as the much-anticipated Chili Cookoff, which brings out local chefs with their best chili recipes. Hungry locals line up to taste the entries, voting on a People's Choice winner — which went to the Statesboro Police Department.
Best Overall winners, representing the Bulloch County Sheriff's Office, took home the trophy for the second year in a row. The Best Restaurant Chili category was won by Outlaws in the Boro, with the motto, "Food so good it should be against the law."
