Clawson Hosts Fire & Spice and Everything Nice
The event will take place from noon-4 p.m. Saturday on West 14 Mile Road.
Downtown Clawson will heat up this Saturday with a chili cook-off, marshmallow drop, bonfire and more during Fire & Spice and Everything Nice.
The event, set for noon-4 p.m., is a celebration of Clawson's Random Acts of Kindness Week (Feb. 13-19), with proceeds benefiting several local organizations.
Downtown Development Authority Director Joan Horton said the chili cook-off will be one of the highlights, with restaurants and local organizations participating in a contest for the best chili in town.
This is the second time the DDA has hosted a Random Acts of Kindness celebration. Horton said the Saturday event is an expansion of last year's Heating it Up in Clawson.
"It's going to be a lot more fun," Horton said. "We tried to get every group in town to participate. I think we are going to see a much bigger crowd this year."
The Clawson Fire Department will put on a marshmallow drop for the children, and there will be prizes for those who collect the most marshmallows, Horton said.
In addition to food and games, there will also be a chain saw artist show at the event.
Attendees should look for a large, heated tent on West 14 Mile Road in the lot next to Clawson Shoe Repair.
