Thousands of chicken wing fans will flock to Coca-Cola Field in downtown Buffalo this weekend for the 12th annual National Buffalo Chicken Wing Festival. The two-day festival has brought in 40 tons of wings.
This year’s festival also will feature a Healthy Zone, encouraging recipes that have the loveable wing flavor but without so many calories.
Among the other weekend events is the second annual Beer and Bacon Festival, from noon to 6 p.m. today in Island Park, in Williamsville. Breweries will supply craft beers, while local restaurants and vendors will serve their bacon related creations. Money raised from the event will support the Breast Cancer Network of Western New York. Information available at bcnwny.org
