Rockin Wing Festival. Bumped admission price from $5 to $7 at the door.

WARNING: This is not a wing festival! They sell their own wings, with sauce bought from Publix, $5 for 5 small wings. All the other vendors there are selling lemonade, cuban food, or hot dogs and sausages. They have one fryer for the wings. That's it. Paid my $14 for 2 tickets, bought a lemonade for $5, saw the wings, cried, and left. Went to Ker's instead for lunch. Total waste of time.
