With mega hits from the ’70s and ’80s, like “Macho Man”, “In The Navy” and “YMCA”, it’s no surprise that fans came out to enjoy The Village People’s Summerfest performance this past weekend.

Led by founding member and lead singer, Victor Willis, the Village People got off to a late start but partied all night long with their Wisconsin fans at the BMO Harris Pavilion. If you weren’t in attendance, than you definitely missed out!
