APPLETON, Wis.- Excitement is at an all time high across Northeast Wisconsin.

"It gives a great opportunity for the people to actually meet one on one, face to face to get a better feel," explained Willie Dunlap of Oshkosh about the presidential candidates coming to visit.

Big names like Bernie Sanders coming to the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center.

"They were saying early this morning they were closing in already over 3,000 RSVP's, so it should be a good crowd," said Fox Cities Performing Arts Center president, Maria VanLaanen.
Hillary Clinton coming to Titletown to the Riverside Ballroom.
"I would equate it to like going to Lambeau Field going to a Lambeau Field game for the Packers," said Captain Paul Ebel of the Green Bay Police Department.
That means no bags, no sticks or sharp objects, expect to be wanded at the door and bring your patience.
"Plan ahead, make sure that you have enough time to get to where you want to be and make sure that you get to the event at the appropriate time," said Capt. Ebel.
At the PAC they're expecting lines before doors open.
"It's first come first serve, doors will open on the corner of College St. and Division St.  We're letting them into our ticket office and into the center at 9:30 tomorrow morning," said VanLaanen.
Excitement that those who live in Northeast Wisconsin are planning to attend.
"Bernie Sanders, he's one candidate that I'm interested in going to see and I will be going to see him tomorrow," said Dunlap.
