Summerfest goes old school on the second day of the 2017 edition with Throwback Thursday.

The main headliner, Luke Bryan, is definitely new school, but there’s plenty of acts performing that will help take you back in time, including Foghat, Slaughter, Toto and former teen idols Hanson.

Summerfest is offering 50 percent off select beverages from noon to 6 p.m. Thursday.

If you spend $50 at area Pick ’n Save locations, that’s good for four free Summerfest tickets.

Wednesday’s Big Bang fireworks show was canceled due to rain and is scheduled for 9:30 p.m. Thursday, weather-permitting.

Other acts on tap for Thursday include Steve Aoki and Brian Setzer’s Rockabilly Riot.


And if you’re trying to slick up your look a bit, American Crew is offering free men’s haircuts at its Blue Suede Barbershop. All you have to do is follow American Crew on social media and use the #bluesuedebarbershop hashtag.
