Forty tons of chicken wings are being trucked from a Wayne Farms facility in Arkansas to Buffalo, N.Y., as the city of Buffalo prepares for its annual chicken wing festival. The festival will be held over the 2013 Labor Day weekend at Buffalo's Coca-Cola Field, a minor league baseball stadium.

National Buffalo Chicken Wing Festival founder and organizer, Drew Cerza, told the Associated Press the event brings tens of thousands of people from across the United States and abroad to the city where the Buffalo-style wing originated.
