WESTPORT - Lots of people are expected to head to Sherwood Island State Park in Westport Sunday to sample some great tasting soups at this year's ChowdaFest.

Organizers say the culinary competition will feature roughly 40 chefs and restaurants from every New England state, and 12 states overall.

The ninth annual ChowdaFest runs from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Sunday.

Organizers say ChowdaFest raises money for Community Plates, a local organization that combats hunger.
