WBFO/AM 970 News

Coca Cola Field was filled with chicken wing fans on Saturday.

The eleventh annual Buffalo National Wing Festival drew thousands to the ballpark. It is estimated that visitors from as many as 41 states and 27 different countries were in attendance, and wing chefs from around the country presented their creations.

One of the annual highlights is the wing eating contest. This year's amateur winner is 19 year old Matt Bonanno from Rochester. Bonanno devoured three pounds of wings in 10 minutes. The contest between pro footballers Eric Wood and Andy Levitre was won by Levitre.

The festival continues today from noon to 7 PM.

Saturday & Sunday 6 a.m. to 12 p.m.
