The bonus: rides on the Ferris wheel and the rest of the fun things are covered by your entrance fee to Summerfest. “On top of that,” Desroches adds, “we have a fantastic musical line-up; we are bringing back the zip line; we have some axe-throwing; we have the show and shine, which is actually the fifth annual show and shine; as well as the mud bog on the Sunday.” The show and shine is for cars, monster trucks and motorcycles.
