Olyphant’s Block Party for the “Battle of the Bands” and fundraiser for the “Freedom Fighter” statue was held recently.

The wing-eating contest featured Olyphant councilman Mike Abda, Olyphant police officer Tim Cramer, local artist and musician Jay Luke and councilman Jerry Tully. The winner was decided by how many wings each individual ate, and then by donation in their name to win. The winner was given the title of “King of Olyphant” for one year.
