Special to The PREVIEW

Attention all green chile enthusiasts: Enrollment is open for the ninth annual Patty Aragon Green Chile Classic (PAGCC).

The cost to enter is $10 and all participants in this community event will receive a commemorative baseball hat. Winners in the meat, vegetarian and overall people’s choice categories will receive $200 each and trophies, while second- and third-place winners receive medals and bragging rights. Registration is first-come, first-served so don’t miss your chance to participate in this event.

We have added a new feature to heat up the competition: a commercial/restaurant category. Commercial entrants pay $25 and first place will land them an exciting prize. Commercial entries are also eligible for People’s Choice award for first, second and third place.

The PAGCC is part of the Mountain Chile Cha Cha. The event will be held rain or shine on Oct. 1 in Town Park. This event is free and also features a Latin music concert, several races hosted by GECKO (joingecko.org for more information), Mexican beer garden, margarita contest, green chile roasting on site and an all-day kids’ corner.
