Hundreds of chowder lovers came out to taste some of the area's best at Chowder Fest at the Montecito Country Club.

The fourth annual festival featured a variety of the soup from classic clam chowder, crawfish chowder to cold corn chowder.

To wash it all down, people were able to get a glass of local beer or wine.
