The IHCC sponsors two major fund-raising events each year: the Hillbilly Chili Cookoff in May and the Hillbilly Games in October. Both events are a lot of fun.
The Hillbilly Chili Cookoff fundraiser is held on the second Saturday of May, starting at Noon in People's Park across from the fire house east of town. There is live music in addition to delicious homemade chili and pies.
The Hillbilly Games fundraiser is on the second Saturday of October, starting at Noon in People's Park across from the fire house east of town. In addition to live music, there are hillbilly horseshoes, an axe-throwing competition, a pie-eating contest, and a raffle and auction, plus other activities and games. Hot dogs and corn on the cob are available all day, capped off with a roast hog dinner starting at 4:00 p.m.
