Wings & Things Ultimate Tailgate Challenge

The 8th Annual Wings & Things Ultimate Tailgate Challenge is on Saturday, September 8th, at the Twin Falls City Park from 4:00pm – 7:00pm. Wings & Things is an evening of food competition and school spirit demonstrations. The food competition categories are: Wings, BBQ, Chili, Dutch Oven and Anything Goes. Everyone is welcome to join us at the Twin Falls City Park to participate in the fun but only those with a wristband will be served delicious food from our contestants.

Tickets are $10 each or 2 for $15 if purchased by September 7th. Kids 6 and under are free with a paying adult. You can purchase tickets online and will have the option to pay with a credit card if you don’t have a PayPal account.

The proceeds from this event will be donated to the athletic departments at local schools.

What will be happening at this event?

The Coaches’ Halftime Challenge starts at 5:00pm. Cheer on your teachers and coaches as they participate in a wing-eating contest. $100 will be awarded at the event.

“Burpees for Bucks” is a chance for you to earn $0.25 for every burpee you do – up to $5 per person – for your favorite local school. You will need to purchase a wristband to participate. The Optimist Club will give up to $500 to your school’s Booster Club.

The School Spirit competition will be judged by a panel of Optimist Club members throughout the event. They will be looking for school colors, sportsmanship towards other schools, participation (cooking, halftime show, etc.) and more. $250 and the traveling trophy will go to the winning school.
