New North Entry Gate opens on Summerfest grounds

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A ribbon cutting was held Thursday morning at the new North Entry Gate and Community Plaza at Summerfest.

 The project has been under construction since last fall and was made possible through a partnership with American Family Insurance.

 New amenities include interactive music spaces open to the general public.

"This new gate doubles the capacity allowing our fans with an easier and safer way to enter the grounds with additional turnstiles, a new box office, and enhanced, new security features," said Don Smiley, President & CEO of Milwaukee World Festivals. 

Summerfest kicks off June 27th and runs through July 8th with a break on the 2nd.
