The 8th Annual Wingfest in Fayetteville was the perfect outing for Father’s Day weekend.

About a dozen local restaurants put their best wings forward Saturday at the Northwest Arkansas Mall to see who could make the best tasting wings around.

Wingfest attendees got to vote on their favorite chicken wings take part in eating contests and enjoy live music. And there was beer.

Participants and judges alike told 5NEWS a lot of heart goes into the competition.
