Action-packed Cookoff brings out crowds

Organizers of the 2015 Mexican National Chili Cookoff in Ajijic went out of their way to ensure that visitors were kept entertained with a variety of top-class acts, along with plenty of audience participation.

Jacque and Carol Bouchard, long-time masters of the Cookoff’s daily raffles, lined up more than 100 prizes this time around.

Sunday’s entertainment program featured a demonstration of sensuous Danzón moves.

Lake Chapala Ballroom and Dancefit got the audience up and shaking.

David Cordero, lead singer of Psychostasia, rocked out for the event’s closing act.

Young dancers from Ajijic’s Ballet Folklorico Xicantzy charmed spectators.
