CLEAR LAKE, Iowa – Sunset Sharky’s in Clear Lake is holding its first annual SharktoberFest on Oct. 13.
The event includes a chili cook-off, polka music, brats and kraut, games, and live music during the evening hours.
Attendees can purchase an endless chili bowl for one dollar and judge the entries.
All proceeds are to benefit a local charity.
Joe Tremmel tells KIMT Saturday afternoon that the event had gone well so far.
“We have about a dozen chilis here and people are sampling it and judging on best taste” said Tremmel. “We’re raising money for a local charity and we’re having a good time, listening to polka music and having a good time.”
Tremmel also said the hope for SharktoberFest is for it to grow in the coming years.
