Third Annual Wings And Things Ultimate Tailgate Challenge A Success
Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Between the taste testing, school spirit competitions, to the wing eating contest, there was plenty to do at the Wings and Things Ultimate Tailgate Challenge.
"Wings and things is we raise money for the kids in the community through the Twin Falls Optimist club. If you've never been here you're missing out. It's a big tailgating event. So you can come and buy a ticket and go around and sample wings, chili, dutch oven, barbeque and then we have a no rules category which is anything goes," said Dustin Godfrey with the Twin Falls Optimist Club.
The event draws businesses from across the Magic Valley who are ready to show off their tasty recipes.
"We showed up to try to show the judges our unofficial Chick-Fil-A try sauce. We showed up in town and everybody wanted fry sauce, but Chick Fil A being from Atlanta, we didn't know what fry sauce was," said Tom Pirie, Manager at the Twin Falls Chick-Fil-A.
People who attended Wings and Things were able to vote for their favorite sauces and foods. Wings and things isn't just a tasty and fun event but it also helps schools in the community."
"We actually do a half time show so we give away a lot of the money at the event. School spirit and then we get some of the coaches up there to do a wing eating contest. And then also this year schools are earning money through physical fitness as well. We are doing burpys for bucks," said Dustin Godfrey.
At the end of the day, the school spirit contest was a close call between Canyon Ridge and Lighthouse Christian.
"We've all been going hard on the burpy challenge. We've been up here cheering our butts off man," said Riley Shindle, a junior at Canyon Ridge High School
But Canyon Ridge walked away with the trophy. Eating wings, having fun and supporting education in the community.
