The famous Village Casino in Bemus Point wants to break their current world record by serving 40,000 chicken wings in 24 hours in Bemus Park, August 11, 8:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. and again August 12, 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. The Village Casino set the last Guinness World Record for wings in 1982.
Celebration of the new world record is slated for 8:00 p.m., Sunday, August 12. The 10,000 Maniacs will be playing to help celebrate upstairs at the Village Casino at 6:30 p.m. sharp (no opening act). $5.00 donation taken at the door. Wing Fest organizers say, “Bring your dancing shoes.”
All proceeds from the new event will benefit the Bemus Point Ferry, Bemus Point Library, and the Bemus Point Fire Department. The event is cash only. Wings will be sold in increments of 10, 15, and 20. Fryers and a beer tent serving Southern Tier beer and Budweiser will be set up in Bemus Park. Wings must be ordered and picked up in the park to count toward the 40,000 world record number. Frank’s RedHot will also help celebrate Western New York’s famous chicken wings.
“We at Professional Hospitality feel incredibly privileged to be able to host this event for Chautauqua County and Bemus Point, New York,” said an event organizer, Steve Carlson. “This is a rare and unique opportunity and we look forward to a successful event culminating in a Guinness World Record being held in Chautauqua County. We need the public’s support to make this happen,” Carlson added.
