The city has temporarily turned CityDeck Court off N. Washington Ave. into Abbey Road, named for the 1969 Beatles album. The iconic album cover features the Fab Four crossing Abbey Road in London. Paul McCartney stands out for his bare feet.
Downtown Green Bay, Inc. and the Department of Public Works teamed up to help spread Beatlemania ahead of Sir Paul's June 8 concert at Lambeau Field.
Also, Fridays on the Fox will host Beatles tribute band The BriTins on June 7.
Downtown Green Bay Inc. says it's excited to get visitors from near and far into the area and hopes local shops and restaurants get a boost from the incoming Paul McCartney fans this weekend.
"We've got people coming and staying at our hotels, eating at our restaurants, checking out our great local shops and boutiques, and it's just great to get that funding source from other places into downtown and the rest of the city, really," Katheryn Kroll, marketing manager for Downtown Green Bay Inc., said.
Saturday will mark the first time Paul McCartney plays the home of the Green Bay Packers. The 76-year-old has been touring the world and the United States on his Freshen Up Tour.
