My favourite time of the year is coming this weekend…the second annual of St. Catharines Wing Fest, happening Saturday, August 12 and Sunday, August 13 at Lakeside Park in Port Dalhousie!
After a crazy successful inaugural event last year, Wing Fest is back and offering up new additions for all my fellow wing lovers! This is a great opportunity to come out and support our local community.
As an active member and lover of the Niagara Region, you already know I think it is important to be involved with local projects that serve this great community we live in. So, as a founding board member for the first Wing Fest, I was thrilled to be apart of a project that and support Community Care, a local not-for-profit helping to meet the needs of less advantaged in our community.
I am proud to be on the board once again, and give our city the best experience and show visitors what we have to offer. I am surrounded by a team of driven individuals and local heroes who are working hard to make this year’s Wing Fest even better than last. A challenge we happily accept.
The Tried, Tested, and True
Like last year, we’ll host a number of local wing establishments, all vying to take home our championship belt as People’s Choice for the best wings in St. Catharines. There’s live music, wine and beer, a chicken wing eating contest and kids zone — fun for everyone! Check out the website for more details.
What’s New This Year?
We’ve added some more friendly competition to the mix because the St. Catharines community loves a good competition. This year, Wing Fest will not only be looking for the best wings in St. Catharines, but also the best Ping Pong Player of 2017. Don’t worry, you won’t have me as competition so you’ll have a chance at the title!
If you’re in the area that weekend or coming from out of town, make sure to stop in and try the classic wings our festival is prided on. Last year Kully’s took home the championship belt, but will they win again this year or is there a new Wing King or Queen in town? As a chicken wing lover myself, I’ll take any recommendations you’ve got!
