More Video...

Wausau's 400 Block was packed Friday night as many couldn't wait to sit outside, soak of the warmth, and listen to some hot tunes. It's the first time for Frontier Fest and it's organizer Steven Jones tells NewsChannel 7 it was a huge success.

Taking the stage were some local acts includings: Brad Emanuel, Windsor Drive, Tuscan Road, and the Spicy Tie Band.

Frontier Fest was more than just getting the chance to listen to some free music. Many concert-goers brought along donations for the Neighbors' Place and the Humane Society of Marathon County.

This was the first concert on the 400 Block for the Summer Season.


Frontier Fest is a free concert and event happening in the 400 block of Downtown Wausau, put on by Frontier Communications.

Not only is there going to be three live bands, raffles, and activities, but all proceeds and donated items will benefit The Humane Society of Marathon County and The Neighbor's Place.

The influx of donations will be monitored by volunteers of Peyton's Promise, the well known local organization.

Representatives from all the mentioned organizations joined me to talk about all the details of the event; even the Frontier Buffalo made several appearances!
