Get the 'Bucks Experience' at Summerfest

Bucks players Giannis Antetokounmpo, John Henson and Zaza Pachulia will join Bucks entertainment acts at the Gruber Law Offices SportsZone at Summerfest

Milwaukee’s Summerfest is best known for its concerts, but that’s not the only entertainment to be found at Henry Maier Festival Park when the “World’s Largest Music Festival” begins next week. Fans can take a break from listening to the music and instead take an opportunity to view the action, as Bucks players Giannis Antetokounmpo, John Henson and Zaza Pachulia, along with Bucks performance groups, will entertain the crowds at the Gruber Law Offices SportsZone located near the Mid Gate.

Antetokounmpo, Henson and Pachulia will take part in the one-hour Bucks Basketball Experience Show, interacting with fans, answering questions, and participating in activities and games. At each session, select fans will have the opportunity to compete in a half-court shooting contest with the chance to win a 10-game ticket pack for the 2014-15 season. Each player will be available for autographs at the adjacent Bucks merchandise headquarters after the Bucks Experience is complete.

The Bucks Rim Rockers dunk team that dazzles the BMO Harris Bradley Center crowds during Bucks games will also present special shows at the Gruber Law Offices SportsZone, with performances scheduled at 7 p.m. on June 25, July 2, July 3 and July 6. Many other Bucks entertainers, including the Milwaukee Bucks Dancers, Bucks Beats drumline, Bucks Grand Dancers, and of course Bango, will also perform at the Gruber Law Offices SportsZone throughout the festival.
