MILWAUKEE - There's a long list of need-to-know items for Summerfest-goers this year.
The Big Bang
The first night of Summerfest brings "The Big Bang," a fireworks celebration of "The Big Gig."
Fireworks lovers can gather by 9:30 p.m. to see the beautiful explosions along the lakefront.
Summerfest has gone plastic-friendly, for the most part.
Many of the vendors at the festival will accept credit cards, but not all of them.
However, if you need cash, you can find plenty of ATM's available on site.

'Smile On' Giveaway
On Wednesday, Summerfest's grounds crew and security staff are giving out 25,000 free weekday admission tickets.
All you have to do is approach them, smile, and say "smile on."
