Even kids who aren't fans of spicy food will get a kick out of the lively music and dance inspired by tangy chili flavors. Check out performances from Atlas Soul, Spanglish Fly and Jeffery Broussard & the Creole Cowboys. Then travel between booths to taste some tasty and semi-spicy foods like chocolate, pretzels and sauces. Guests can tour the gardens and view BBG's collection of chile pepper plants. If kids don't like the food, they'll enjoy Hot Chiles for Cool Kids, where they can pot their own pepper plant. All ages.
