This will give you the chance to sample two wings from each of the 15+ vendors, which is over 30 wings per person!

All proceeds go to St. Jude the Apostle School tuition assistance program.
And finally, if you feel like taking a bit of a drive, head on up to Lake George to drive the Prospect Mountain Memorial Highway. There will be no fee to drive here today and tomorrow, so take advantage and enjoy some spectacular views from high above Lake George in the Adirondacks.
