(5/30/14) Here's a breakfast that's worth waiting for.
Three recent Marshfield High School graduates set up a tent at 10 a-m yesterday, so they could be first in line for today's annual Mayor's Breakfast at the Marshfield Dairyfest. Brad Krueger, Rishabh Sharma, and Andrew Wittman waited 19-and-a-half hours for their eggs, strawberries-and-ice cream, and all the other fixings. For being first in line, they won Wisconsin Dells tickets plus an overnight hotel stay in Marshfield. But for them, the prizes were not as important as beating Wittman's and Krueger's record for camping in line. They arrived an hour later a year ago, around 11 the morning before the big meal. It's one of the big parts of Marshfield's annual three-day celebration, which salutes the dairy industry in central Wisconsin. The biggest event is a parade tomorrow which normally attracts around 20-thousand spectators.
