Chile Pepper Fiesta 2010

A fiery success is the only way to describe the 2010 Chile Pepper Fiesta! Over 8,000 revelers experienced the hottest sounds and tastes the world (and Brooklyn) has to offer. Chocolatiers showcased their sweet and spicy sides while local chefs competed for visitor votes in the Chile Chocolate Takedown. Temperatures peaked during a death defying fire breathing and juggling act, which incidentally proved to be the perfect transition into an energetic yet soulful performance by Haiti's Boukman Eksperyans. Here are some of our favorite shots from the day.
