So what exactly is WingFest, you ask? WingFest is a food festival where 15-20 local restaurants will cook their hearts out to serve the community their best wings, in hopes of being crowned as having the Best Wings on Hilton Head Island. Beyond the food and drinks, which there is plenty of, there’s also great live music by local bands. There’s no better combo than wings, a cold beer, views of the ocean and sunset, and live music playing in the background!
