People got the opportunity to sample the best chicken wings in the La Crosse area Saturday afternoon.

The La Crosse Loggers and Miller Lite are sponsoring Wing Fest at the Lumberyard.

The event features wing tasting from 10 vendors in the area, games and live music.

People will be able to vote on their favorite wings and a winner will be crowned at the end of the night.

A portion of the proceeds from Saturday's event will go to the Youth Enrichment Association.

Organizers say the event is a fun way to celebrate local wing recipes.

"Everywhere you go in town, everybody talks about their wings specials. It's wing Wednesdays or Thursdays so we kind of figured why not put it to a test. And have them come out here and put their wing in front of thousand plus people to taste and let them decide. And it's really a fun competition for them. I mean, they're into it, they want to win the title. But it's just great exposure for people tasting their food." Ben Kapanke, event coordinator, said.
