Mouths were set ablaze on June 27, as crowds gathered in Everts Park in Highwood to sample some of the spiciest local foods at Inferno Fest.

The event, which was put on by Celebrate Highwood, featured multitudes of vendors serving up their hottest and spiciest dishes, from classic hot foods like tamales and salsas, to more unique options including spicy kettle corn from Jester Juice and spicy bloody marys from The Toadstool Pub.

Mark Czubak, the owner of Tiger Ceviche, brought his Chicago-based business to the festival.
