The highlight of the day's events at the Midwest Wingfest on Saturday was the Wing-Eating Contest. Here, last year's champ Joe Zaidi works on eating 25 chicken wings and was the first to finish them, winning again. Zaidi lives in downtown St. Louis. There was also a 5K run early Saturday morning, music by live groups throughout the day, and dozens of vendors selling a variety of chicken wings and other food items and beverages. The Wingfest, which was held on the east parking lot at St. Clair Square, helps support disabled veterans.
