The 2012 Fall Taste of Newnan event on Oct. 4 included voting for Best Chili, Best of Taste and Best Booth.

Winners have been announced by Main Street Newnan.

Winner for Best Chili was awarded to The Cellar, with Fabiano’s winning second place, said JoAnn Gentry, Main Street manager.

“Volunteer judges from BB&T had the difficult task of choosing the winner,” she said.

West Georgia Technical College once again won “Best of Taste” and “Best Booth” with its 1970s-themed menu and decorations.

Also, April Jones was the winner of the $50 Main Street Money gift certificate.
