Bucks Summer Block Party to be held Saturday
The Milwaukee Bucks will be filling local streets once again with entertainment, fun and a festival-like atmosphere for the Bucks Third Annual Summer Block Party. The third edition of the block party will take place on Saturday, June 10, from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM on Second Street and Cherry Street outside of the Bucks’ offices in Schlitz Park, and will consist of current and former Bucks players, live entertainment, food, drinks and everything that makes summer festivals in Milwaukee can’t-miss events.
The highlight of this year’s Summer Block Party will be the first major announcement of the Bucks’ 50th Anniversary celebration, which will take place at 2:00 PM.
Rookie of the Year candidate Malcolm Brogdon and fellow guards Gary Payton II and Rashad Vaughn, along with Bucks legends Vin Baker, Bob Dandridge, Marques Johnson and Desmond Mason, are scheduled to be in attendance to sign autographs and interact with the crowd.
Live music, presented by Sucher Entertainment and FLYE entertainment, will consist of all local bands including Rob Martin, Mt. Zion Roots, Corey Pieper, Cigarette Break and Cincere, while food and drinks will be available for purchase from Davian’s catering, local restaurants and food trucks.
A special Bucks history and museum display, a Bucks Pro Shops tent, and over 50 vendors will be on site, in addition to the entire Bucks Entertainment Network.
