Experience the ultimate tailgate at Kings of the Wings

January 21, 2019

Kings of the Wings, presented by Northern State Bank, returns Saturday, Feb. 2, for a family-friendly tailgating party inside the Ralph Engelstad Arena before the Thief River Falls Norskies hockey game. From 5 to 7 p.m., the community will have the chance to sample wings from local wing masters and vote for their favorites.

This year, seven contestants will put their best wing recipes to the test and compete for one of these awards: Taster’s Choice, Showmanship, People’s Choice and Wing Master.

Each ticket includes wings, side dishes, dessert and admission to the Thief River Falls Norskies vs. Thunder Bay North Stars hockey game starting at 7 p.m.

Proceeds from this special event will support the Youth Health and Wellness Fund in Thief River Falls through the Sanford Health Foundation. Every dollar will help provide youth programs, such as gymnastics and ninja warrior classes, at the Sanford Health Thief River Falls Wellness Center.

On behalf of the kids, thank you to the community and some of our most dedicated sponsors, including Northern State Bank, Border State Bank, Digi-Key, AmericInn by Wyndham, North Risk Partners-Thune Division, Coca-Cola and Hefty Seed Company.

“We are truly lucky to have the support of our community as we continue to provide a fun place where kids can learn to love physical activity,” says Kjelsy Stueber, Wellness Center manager.

For tickets, call (218) 683-6583.
