There are plenty of admission deals for Summerfest every year... who knew that swimming was one of them?

A man attempted to swim to the Summerfest grounds on Saturday night. He swam across the lagoon from Lakeshore State Park. Mike De Sisti, a Journal Sentinel photographer, first spotted the man as he was taking pictures of the Summerfest grounds.

A crowd of people - and Summerfest security - began to form as the man approached shore. He was helped out of the water by Summerfest security once he reached shore. The swimmer's name is unknown, and it's unclear if any action has been taken by security or Milwaukee police.
