Division champs to hold Summerfest rally

The Brewers will celebrate their first division crown since 1982 with a playoff rally on the Summerfest grounds on Thursday, with tunes from the band Five for Fighting. The free event is from 4 p.m.-7:30 p.m. CT at the Miller Oasis.

More than 14,000 fans attended a similar send-off after the Brewers won the National League Wild Card in 2008, highlighted by then-closer Salomon Torres’ “Twenty-six years!” address. If you were there, you’ll remember it.

Parking is available for $5 in Lots G, H, M and P near the Henry Maier Festival Park. Patrons should enter the Summerfest Grounds at the Mid Gate (Chicago St. and Harbor Dr.). Gates open at 3:30 p.m. CT. The band Pan Am will take the stage at 4 p.m., and players and coaches are expected to address the crowd between 5:15-5:45. p.m.

The event will be carried live on FS Wisconsin from 5-6 p.m., and 620 WTMJ-AM will also broadcast live. Five for Fighting will take the stage at about 6 p.m.
