MILWAUKEE - There are lots of new things to see, eat and ride this year at Summerfest.

There are new food vendors like Burke's Lakeside. They're crafting up food creations like Lobster and Shrimp BLT's and delicious flat breads.
 
Also new is a Summerfest app for IOS and Android phones.
 
Visitors can create a playlist with the acts they want to watch. It can be tailored to push alerts before the next concert starts.
 
It's just not new food and technology visitors will be talking about said Summerfest spokesman John Boler.
 
"This year we're launching a brand new experience for families and music fans." Boler said.
 
It's called the "Summerfest Wheel in the Sky", which is an 85-foot Ferris wheel.
 
Other favorites like the Sky Glider and Paddle Boats will also return.
