After a day in the snow, a warm bowl of chili is a great way to warm up, and a Duluth church made an event of it Sunday.

It's called the Fire and Ice Bowl at Eastridge Community Church in Duluth. This is the fourth year for the event.

It includes a chili cook-off with 25 different recipes and plenty of things for kids to do outside. People were enjoying sledding and snowshoeing; a good way to burn some pent up energy.

"It's February and we figured it's a really long winter, so let's just embrace it and have fun" Pastor Tom Asbury said. "All the kids kind of go a little stir crazy so we just have a really fun event for everybody."

While highs were only in the single digits, church members were just thankful it wasn't windy and -25 degrees.

The entire community was invited to the event.
