Scenes from Midwest Wing Fest

1 of 61



Be honest: How many chicken wings have you eaten in a single sitting? A celebration of the chicken wing went down on August 30 and 31, 2013 in the parking lot of the St. Clair Square shopping mall in Fairview Heights, Illinois. There was a "best wing" contest, a chicken wing eating contest, and of course, a 5K run. Photographer Theo Welling brings back these scenes of all things chicken wing, for the Riverfront Times.
