DANBURY, Conn. -- Temperatures may be low outside, but things are set to heat up with the Chili Winter Warm-Up this weekend. 

The sixth annual event runs from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 23, at the Danbury Sports Dome at 25 Shelter Rock Lane in Danbury. The Danbury Sports Dome has teamed with the Danbury Westerners to hold the event, which features chili tasting, soccer, magic, music and children's activities. 

There will be face painting and music performances by Dave King, Standby and the Mad Hatters Barbershop Chorus. The Danbury High School cheerleaders also will perform. More than 20 vendors will be on hand, selling everything from jewelry to maple syrup.
