Brat Days 2016 is Underway

News

A Rockford tradition, going strong for more than four decades, gets some super-sized help.

The Johnsonville Giant Grill is part of this year’s Alpine Kiwanis Brat Days.  There are three Brat Days locations, the Schnucks in Loves Park, the East State Street Schnucks, and at Edgebrook Center.  Organizers expect a record year serving up thousands of brats to raise money for about 40 local agencies.  People support the event for more than just the food.

“They like their brats,” said Brat Days Co-chair Randy Larson.  “But, they also like the fact that this is a charitable group of people really wanting to serve our community.  We’re proud of being part of Kiwanis.  We’re proud of being part of the greater Rockford area.”

Brat Days will hold events Saturday from 11am to 5:30pm.  The Loves Park site will honor veterans at 1pm.
