28th Annual Burger Fest/Balloon Rally-Seymour
Burger Fest is an amazing volunteer-run festival that raises funds for scholarships and community projects in the Home of the Hamburger, Seymour, Wisconsin. It draws people from around the world for small town fun with a big attitude! Burger Fest started in 1989 to celebrate the birth of the burger in Seymour in 1885.
