Dozens of people were out cleaning up the aftermath of Chilifest 2013.

The two-day annual event ended Saturday night. Chilifest organizers say it will take a few days to clean the mess up.

Proceeds from the event go to several charities around the area.

Organizers say, for them, the event isn't over.

"The 2013 Chilifest will end when I have a meeting at the end of this month with Chilifest. Our Chilifest 2014 will start at that meeting also, so we start planning for next year,” said Constable Dennis Gaas with the Burleson County Sheriff’s Department.

Organizers say this year they hit a record-breaking attendance with a 2-day total of more than 50,000 people.
