MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) – With an hour still to go for people to pick up a brat to take to work (or wherever they are going), nearly 19,000 of them have already been served up.

As of 8 a.m., organizers reported having dished out 18,961 brats in the first two hours of the annual event.

Starting at 6 a.m., people wanting to start their weekend off with the best breakfast of the year, a brat, headed down to Willow Island at the Alliant Energy Center to pick up a bratwurst.

Of course, if you’re ‘taking your brat to work,’ nothing beats bringing some from your co-workers.

Special guests, including NBC15′s John Stofflet, Leigh Mills, Michelle Baik, and Phoebe Murray, will join The Morning Show team throughout the event. It runs through 9 a.m., so head out there early.

Those driving to the event will need to enter the grounds from Rimrock Road. There is a special route for bicyclists. You can find Brat Fest maps and directions here.

And, remember, when you support “Take Your Brat to Work Day,” you’re helping more than one hundred local charities keep their programs running.
