THREE LAKES - Something sweet and savory brings hundreds people to Three Lakes. 

"Uh these cinnamon rolls they're sinful," said cinnamon roll fan Gil Purtell. 

Gil and his wife Elizabeth said they waited all year for this moment. 

"Cinnamon, sugar and it's a generous size," said Elizabeth. 

The Three Lakes Pumpkin Fest cinnamon rolls aren't hard to find, just follow the people. 

"They keep coming," said cinnamon roll maker Christina Welcenbach. 

Roll lovers like the Purtell's can thank the ten volunteers including Welcenbach for their favorite treat.

"I got an hour and half sleep. We were in the kitchen for 7.5 hours on our feet," said Welcenbach. 

That hard work is just a few reasons why people give into their sweet tooth.

"This is the only time I'll eat one of these, when I'm here. I'm always watching my calories and everything [at home]," said Elizabeth.
