Don’t worry if you missed watching the annual Nathan’s hot dog eating contest on the Fourth of July – you’ll have another chance to watch humans fill their faces with bar food on Saturday as the annual Wingstock returns to Santander Stadium in York.
As in years past, this year’s ‘Stock offers a full menu of contests and competitions, from tongue-in-cheek events like a rooster crowin’ competition and chicken lookin’ legs competition, to games of chance like egg roulette, featuring a single-elimination tournament bracket where two competitors choose from six eggs – five of which are hard-boiled and one is raw – and smash them against their foreheads until one person encounters the raw egg.
Don’t forget to arrive hungry… While the judge’s will do the eating to crown the Best Wings crown (can Kickin’ Kadilaks retain their title?), the People’s Choice honor will go to whichever participating restaurant wins over the palates – and hearts – of the crowd.
As for the aforementioned wing-eating competition, the dash for consuming the most regular wings kicks off at 4:30 p.m., while the sweat-inducing suicide wing-eating contest gets underway at 4:45 p.m. If you’re interested in participating, you must register in advance.
The best part? Wingstock benefits the Crispus Attucks Association – an inclusive, non-profit that aims to educate, house and help serve the diverse population of York.
The event runs from 12-6 p.m. Tickets are $6 in advance online and $8 at the door, and you get three wings with your ticket.
