Observing the large group of men, women and children brings one thing to mind — Johnsonville Sausage Fest is more than eating, drinking and dancing.

It’s about the gathering of the entire community.

Johnsonville Sausage Fest is an event where family and friends come together and make newcomers feel welcome. They are included as a part of the community and the family.

The Johnsonville Fire Department, Laack’s Ballroom, Johnsonville LLC and the Johnsonville Hustlers 4-H were all responsible for sponsoring the 2017 edition of Johnsonville Sausage Fest, as well as the bands in the ballroom and outside the firehouse.

The music enjoyed in Laack’s Ballroom came courtesy of the Carl Laack Band and Carol and the Keynotes.

While those bands were performing inside, the outside air was filled with the music of The Version and Copper Box. Both bands were not only entertaining but sang songs which inspired the crowd to sing along with them.

The menu for the day included chicken sandwiches, hamburgers and of course those famous Johnsonville Brats.

In addition, there was no shortage of desserts and ice cream, which was served up by the Johnsonville Hustlers 4-H Club.

The members of the Johnsonville Fire Department extend a warm “thank you” to the community for their support.

Also, the money raised during Johnsonville Sausage Fest will help keep the firefighters safe by providing new and needed equipment.
