“We’re here because we support the recall of (Gov.) Scott Walker,” said Alyson Pohlman, 32, sitting at a table with a group of friends waiting for the band Halley’s Hoop to perform at the Wurst Times festival.So there are 3 alternative brat fests, along with the traditional World's Largest Bratfest?
“It’s a wonderful spin on a Madison tradition, where we get to support and empower our values,” Pohlman added.
Brian Cislak, 62, was there for the same reason: “To gather with people of like minds who want to see Scott Walker recalled.”...
The Wurst Times festival... sprang up last year along with two others as an alternative to the World’s Largest Brat Fest, now in its 30th year.
The World’s Largest, a four-day festival that runs through today at Willow Island at the Alliant Energy Center, has raised more than $1 million for charity. It became controversial last year after it became public that executives of sponsor Johnsonville Sausage made campaign contributions to Walker....So where did the alternative brat fests buy their brats? Did they make sure the brats were made by Wisconsin workers whose employer's executives contributed to Tom Barrett? Are there brats like that?
