Milwaukee – Fans endured cold temperatures and snow at Miller Park this weekend during the 8th annual “Arctic Tailgate Party.”

People started camping out at the stadium Friday morning and stayed there all night long. On Saturday morning they had their first chance at buying tickets for individual Brewers games.

Despite the frigid temperatures, fans told TODAY’S TMJ4 that it was worth the wait.

“Me and my buddy over here have been coming for the last six years since we were junior in high school,” said one fan. “I'm a really passionate baseball fan. I love Milwaukee, I love the Brewers and I love the whole opening day experience.”

The Brewers said they sold 91,000 tickets Saturday.
