Seymour, Wisconsin The Home of the Hamburger is an idyllic community of about 3,000 located in the heart of dairy country 15 miles west of Green Bay. For the past 25 years the community has celebrated Burger Fest. Burger Fest first started in 1989 to celebrate the birth of the burger in Seymour in 1885. On August 4, 2001 an 8,266 pound hamburger was cooked up on the mammoth "Charlie Grill." American Legion Post's 106 color guard leads the World's Largest Hamburger Parade each year. Hamburger Fest is a real family event on Friday there is the Balloon Rally beginning around 4:00p.m. then the balloons take flight weather permitting, once they are down and back to the staging area they have the evening Balloon Glow at dusk. If you have never seen the balloons lighting up the evening sky you need to come to this event. Food is served burgers head the menu. The balloons go up again the next morning and fill the sky. There is the annual Bun Run, a car show, bands, a kids Bun Run. Then at 11:00a.m. the parade begins. Hundreds of motorcycles thunder through the main street followed by American Legion Post 106 Color Guard. After the parade there are kids games, bands playing under the big tent, a Ketchup Slide with records kept each year. The Museum is open and displays the worlds largest collection of Hamburger Memorabilia in the world.
