"It's a lot of adrenaline, staff members have been working for over a year just to get everything ready," Owens said.

Food and Drink vendors were also out early Wednesday morning preparing for the hundreds of thousands of visitors.

Officials say the entire grounds and stages were ready to roll when Summerfest 2014 opened at noon.
