Storm Lake City Council Approves Prizes for Upcoming Contest at Sunrise Campground

The Storm Lake City Council on Monday approved prizes for an event at the Sunrise Campground in late July.

A Chili Cook Off will be held at the campground on Saturday, July 30th. The first-place winner will receive two free weekend stay camping coupons for the 2023 season.

Flyers will soon be distributed to advertise the event. Participants will have to sign a liability form.

The council approved up to 500-dollars worth of campground prizes to be given away the remainder of this year.
