And just like the name suggests, this hot and spicy food fest will leave that tongue tingling and those eyes watering.

"I tried it just for fun and it’s not worth it. My tongue is so bad, it's burning. Like, I wanna dip it in milk,” said Johnny Lamb.

Vendors and high-profile chefs are firing things up with bold samples and food contests, not to mention the cool music!

So how hot can things get at ZestFest?

“You've got everything from the mildest salsa, a little bit of chili powder, up to the hottest you've gotta sign a release before you can try it kind of stuff," said Chef Jon Bonnell.

Yeah, and from the looks of it, the heat was nothing to mess with.
