The Glens Falls Collaborative plans its annual Wing Fest on Saturday, April 29, from noon to 3 p.m. in Downtown Glens Falls. The event is a competition between restaurants for the best wings.

Tasting is from noon to 3 p.m. and an awards ceremony at the bandstand in City Park will close out the event.

Tickets are $1 each, and the number of tickets to taste varies by restaurant.

The event is on Glen, Ridge and Maple Streets.

There are two trophies up for grabs: the Judge’s Choice, and the People’s choice. Judges will taste each entry, and for the public to vote, they must taste from at least eight different restaurants.
