After the Fourth of July, the fun doesn't stop in York City.

From 1 to 6 p.m. Saturday, the Wingstock festival will spice up Sovereign Bank Stadium Plaza with more than 20 hot-wing vendors.

Proceeds will benefit the Crispus Attucks Association, said Carol Kauffman, community development director for association, which is hosting the event.

"We're absolutely delighted to finally bring Wingstock to York," Kauffman said.

After all, it doesn't get more American than wings, bands and baseball, she said.

Eggy events: The event will feature live music, eating contests and a talent show, wrapping up the night with a York Revolution baseball game.

Some local leaders, such as state Rep. Kevin Schreiber and Bobby Simpson, chief executive officer of the association, will compete in egg roulette.

The chancy game will give contestants five eggs each -- four hardboiled ones and one raw one -- that they will smash on their foreheads. The winner will earn $500 toward the charity of his or her choice. The losers will end up with egg on their faces.

And attendees have their chance to shine, too, with a wing-eating competition that will give $100 to the winner and a hot-egg eating contest that will give $500 to the winner. A youth talent show will also give out $100 in prizes to winners in each age category.

Chicken bowling: The fundraiser will also feature chicken bowling, where the pins are dressed up as farm fowl, Kauffman said. The game will feature two lanes, bumpers and a lightweight bowling ball, making it kid-friendly, she said.

And two bands, Sting-Rays of York and Time Out, will play throughout the day.

The association hasn't organized fundraisers in the past, but it hopes to make Wingstock a signature event, Kauffman said.

And it's a great way to continue the fun of Independence Day, said Cindy Leiphart, development director for the Crispus Attucks Association.

"It's a good time to extend your holiday with the all-American pastime of wings, baseball, bands, good food and fun," she said.

Wingstock tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for children up to age 11. For $15 and $12, adults and children can attend the event and watch the York Revolution and rival Lancaster Barnstormers battle it out at 6:30 p.m. Each ticket includes a serving of wings and a door prize entry.

"So for your $10 ticket, you get a lot of opportunities to win big," Leiphart said. "It's a great deal."
