Hanover residents won't have to notify family or file change of address forms, but for five hours Sunday, they will officially live in Chili City.

From 11 a.m. through 5 p.m. Sunday - the duration of the Chili Cook-Off - Hanover will get the spicy new name by mayoral proclamation.

Ben Adams, soon-to-be mayor of Chili City, said the idea came from the committee organizing the annual event, which raises money for local charities and nonprofits.
