HERMANN — An eastern Missouri town with a strong German heritage is about to celebrate sausage.

Hermann's two-day Wurstfest is March 24 and March 25, honoring the self-described "Sausage Capital of Missouri."

Bratwurst, leberwurst, schwartenmagen and other delicacies will all be available. Admission for sausage sampling is $6, and 13 sausage vendors will have their meats on display.

A statewide sausage-making contest will be held March 24, where old-time sausage-making skills will be demonstrated.

Herrmann's craft shops and wineries will be open, and live music will be performed. The annual Wiener Dog Derby is at 1 p.m. March 25.
