Wingzilla — Chicken Wing Cookoff, Horsehoes & ATV Poker Run

WINGZILLA is a Barbecue Chicken Wing Cook-Off Competition and “Luck of the Draw” Horseshoe Tournament. Cash prizes awarded to the winners of both competitions! Come, enjoy the show and taste BBQ Chicken Wings as you’ve never experienced.

Put your taste buds to the test in the Killazilla Hot Wing Eating Contest or give it your best toss in the Cornhole Contest.

The Local 1088 Firefighters of Berlin are sponsoring a Luau ATV Poker Run, so wear a Hawaiian shirt and decorate your ATVs with leis and flowers and you can win a prize. All proceeds from the Poker Run go to Operation Warm (new coats for kids).

There’s face painting and games for the kids, and lip-smackin’ barbecue, burgers, hot dogs and a beer tent. There will also be live music!
