2018 is a year of celebrations for the Home of the Hamburger in Seymour, Wis. Seymour is celebrating the 30th year of Burger Fest. The 30th annual Burger Fest takes place Saturday, August 11. Happening the same weekend is the 18th annual Burger Fest Hot Air Balloon Rally featuring breathtaking hot air balloon glows and ascensions. The hamburger was created by Charlie Nagreen at the Seymour fair in 1885. This also happens to be the 150th year of Seymour’s existence and what a perfect way to celebrate it. There will be a 5K with burger contests and hot air balloons and a 190 pound burger. Burger Fest is entirely run by volunteers and raises money for scholarships and community projects in Seymour.
