Wingfest V serves up thousands of chicken wings

Wingfest will crown a new king or queen of wings

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - The 5th annual Wingfest took place in Copeland Park on Saturday.

The Coulee Region's best chicken wing makers competed for the title of 'best wing'.

A $17 V.I.P. ticket got festers the chance to sample each competitor's wings and then vote for the Wingfest winner.

The event coordinator, Ben Kapanke, said that over 12,000 wings would be served at the brand-new Logger Wing Tent.

"They're all doing different -- a different sauce, a different spin on things -- so you're going to get a lot of variety at all these different restaurants. So, it's pretty cool to see what they're bringing to the table today and how it gets received," said Kapanke.

The event also included live music from the group "Slow No Wake" and sporting events shown on a 17-by-30 inch video board.
