2nd Annual “Out of Sight” Wing Fling on June 24th Hosted by Mountainaire Farms, Array Magazine, and the VRC:

When: June 24

Where: Festival Park, Downtown Fayetteville

Time: 3-8 pm

Cost: $5.00 admission and $10.00 sampling card to be a judge for the People’s Choice winner
(sample of 10 wings)

Please help us spread the word about what this great event is about! Simply put, it’s a Chicken Wing Cook-off in a family-friendly setting. Our competitor’s “job” is to create the best wings they can bring to the judges’ table and for the community to judge. Two $500 cash prizes will be given: Best Wings per the judges and the People’s Choice Best Wings. So there are two opportunities to WIN! Those that purchase a sampling ticket will get to judge all of the competitor’s wings as they enjoy the rest of the event with vendors, live music, EyeQ Zone, Kid Zone food trucks, and best of all, you will help the visually impaired and blind community in our county.
