MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - If you’re hosting a 4th of July picnic, it should cost less than $6 a person to feed whoever you invite.
The Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation says the average price of a standard Independence Day meal in 28 cities is $5.59 per tummy. That includes hot dogs, cheeseburgers, and spare ribs – plus potato salad, baked beans, watermelon, chocolate milk, and lemonade.
Wisconsin’s price is about 13 cents less than the average in 21 other states.
Those Farm Bureaus report an average of $5.72 a person for the holiday meal.
