SAUK RAPIDS - It was the best smelling place in Minnesota on Saturday – Wingfest 2012! 27,000 chicken wings smothered in 40+ different sauces!

The Sports Arena-East at the Benton County Fairgrounds filled up quickly with the sweet, tangy, spicy and exotic flavors of sauces created by folks from all over Central Minnesota- and filled quickly with hungry ‘wingnuts’!

Reporter Abby Faulkner snapped a lot of photos - check out our gallery of all the fun!
