MILWAUKEE — Love don’t cost a thing, but tickets to the Jennifer Lopez concert at Summerfest come with a hefty price tag.

“For three of us, it was about $650,” said one local mom, who bought tickets for her daughters.

But fans say it’s worth every penny. This will be J Lo’s first Milwaukee concert.

“I love her music,” said one die-hard fan. “I think she’s great and beautiful. She’s turning 50 this year, and she looks amazing. You can’t find a better entertainer.”

On Wednesday, those who weren’t losing their minds over “Jenny from the Block” were losing their things. Well, sort of — one of the busiest jobs at the Big Gig is manning the Lost and Found booth, just south of the Harley-Davidson Stage.

Thousands of items have been turned in so far. They are all logged by date and type, and given a number. It’s mostly keys, wallets and cellphones. But you wouldn’t believe some of the stuff people lose.

“We had some crutches turned in,” said Sarah Pancheri, vice president of sales and marketing for Milwaukee World Festival Inc. “We felt terrible for whoever left their crutches behind! A pair of dentures was also an interesting one. We were shocked someone forgot those.”

A full “lost and found” might just be the most telling sign of how much fun people are having at Summerfest.

If you lose or find something important at Summerfest, you should find a security guard or head to an information desk. They can direct you to that Lost and Found booth. There is also an option online to describe what you lost at Summerfest.com.

Organizers try to respond to everyone within 48 hours. Anything not claimed after 30 days is given to charity.
