I Wing Ding got started as a project from the 2011 class of Leadership Vestavia Hills, in an effort to bring local citizens together for a kickoff to the summer season and to make a difference for children and families fighting cystic fibrosis. In addition to benefiting charity, the event's goal is "to celebrate the City of Vestavia Hills and attract people in from other communities and expose them to our local businesses," says Brent Irby, 2014 president of Leadership Vestavia Hills. The event's title, Wing Ding, is a nod to the central element of the day: good food. Local chefs, both professional and amateur, register their teams to compete in the chicken wing-cooking contest. Event attendees are able to sample their savory concoctions as well as other refreshments from a variety of vendors. In addition to the food, Wing Ding offers live entertainment and children's activities. This year, performers included Rollin' in the Hay and Willie Guy and the Lost Maples. Located in the Vestavia City Center parking lot behind Mugshots and Sweet Frog, "Wing Ding is a festival for all ages," Irby says. Free for children 12 and under and just $5 per adult, Wing Ding is an affordable, convenient opportunity to welcome summer and enjoy food, music and interacting with other residents and visitors.
