There was plenty of food, music and cold drinks to quench one’s thirst and enjoy the homestyle food that is always readily available at this annual affair.

Johnsonville Sausage Fest is, however, more than just eating, drinking and dancing.

It is the major fundraiser for the Johnsonville Fire Department and it’s quite evident that this group enjoys involving their wives, girlfriends and children to help with making this all come together.

The department also has a big interest in getting the youth interested in becoming full-time firefighters.

Department members do this by beginning to involve them in training before they are 18 years old and Ben Holzmann is just one of those candidates.

He wants to have an active part as soon as he can and that was evident because he has been taking the necessary training and was busy keeping the brats available for hungry visitors.

The day began with a church service in the firehouse and it con- tinued with polkas and waltzes in the ballroom, courtesy of the Carl Laack Band

If it was something more contemporary you wanted. The Copper Box played in the afternoon outside of the firehouse.

You had all this and the chance to visit with family, friends and neighbors.

Johnsonville Sausage Fest gives everyone the opportunity to help bring the community back to its roots though a variety of traditional activities.

So, if you missed the event this year, mark your calendars and look for the date next July in 2014.

And oh yes. Did I mention there will be a lot good food and dancing at the 2014 Johnsonville Sausage Fest?
