SLINGIN’ WINGS FESTIVAL RETURNS BIGGER AND BETTER FOR SECOND YEAR

Heading to May 12, the Slingin’ Wings Festival looks to expand on last year’s initial offering by adding more vendors and more wing styles. “We are planning on having around 16 vendors and more than 50 different types of wings,” says event producer Jonathan Colon. “There will be everything from classic buffalo wings and roasted wings to jerk wings and boneless wings. We’ll even have sauces with alcohol infused in them.” Each ticket holder starts the day with four wings, with the option to purchase more wings and beverages. Throughout the day, there will be a number of contests, including the People’s Choice Award, the Hudson FC Wing-Eating Contest and the Slingin’ Wings Contest, an egg toss-style game.
