Brat Fest, Jeff Chesterman at World's Largest Brat Fest
Brat and beer in hand, Jeff Chesterman of Milwaukee takes in the World’s Largest Brat Fest Saturday at Alliant Energy Center’s Willow Island. Before opening Friday, the annual event had raised $957,439 for charities since beginning in 1983. It continues through Monday, and organizers expect the total to top $1 million this year.

Hungry patrons at the World's Largest Brat Fest bought 159,804 brats at this year's festival at Willow Island.

While total fell short of the Brat Fest record of 209,376 brats sold last year, the festival surpassed $1 million in money raised for local charities and now has sold more than 3 million brats since the event began in 1983.
