Summerfest adds new attractions in 2015

Summerfest is adding a lot of new attractions to the grounds this year.  The new restaurants making their debut at Henry W. Maier Festival Park in 2015 are Milwaukee Ice Cream Company, Ward's House of Prime, and Vagabond.  

Ward's House of Prime's signature item at the festival will be bacon wrapped prime rib bites.  Speaking of bacon, the festival is also featuring it's very first bacon eating contest.  On July 3rd, 10 contestants will see how much bacon they can eat in 2 minutes.  The winner gets a year's supply of Patrick Cudahy bacon, the official bacon of Summerfest.

Another contest that's new this year is a car giveaway.  On the last day of Summerfest, July 5th, one lucky festival guest will win a brand new 2015 Hyundai Sonata.  You can check out the car and register to win every day of Summerfest at the midgate.  

In honor of Les Paul's 100th birthday, the Big Sound Experience is also new this year.  The exhibit honors the Wizard of Waukesha's life and everything he has given to the community.
