Summerfest surprise


MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- We are just a week away from the World's Largest Music Festival and there is something big planned for opening day at Summerfest.

25,000 free tickets will be up for grabs, but you have to be there on opening day to get one.

Fireworks and air horns will cue the crowd at 5:30pm next Wednesday.

"Security guards and grounds crew will raise their flags. If they raise a flag, that means they have tickets to give away," says marketing officer John Boler.

People who get them will be able to come back later in the week to use them.

Crews are now preparing the 75 acre site for the festival.

That means a whole lot of construction to build the stages.
