Ahead of the June 23 kick-off of Milwaukee’s famous Summerfest Music Festival, the lawns of Henry Maier Festival Park got their first cut of the 2022 season thanks to festival sponsor Briggs & Stratton..
Billing itself as “the world’s largest music festival,” Summerfest attracts some 800,000 people each year and is held at Henry Maier Festival Park, adjacent to Lake Michigan. More than 1,000 performances by nationally known and local performers take place over 11 days from late June through early July.
For 2022, the Festival Park’s 75 acres were mowed by a premium Simplicity Contender XT zero-turn tractor and a Ferris SRS Z1 stand-on commercial zero-turn mower. In addition, a Ferris Hurricane blower took care of cleaning leaves and other debris from the lawn and walkways.
“The first mow of the season, whether it’s at home or the festival grounds, marks a sense of renewed growth and energy,” says Christin Wam, Briggs & Stratton’s senior director of marketing for turf and consumer products. “Briggs & Stratton has been a long-term sponsor of Summerfest and we’re proud that our Ferris and Simplicity brand mowers are getting the lawns ready for Summerfest and all of the other exciting events at Henry Maier Festival Park this season.”
