Sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson, the frontwomen of Heart, braved a cold and windy afternoon for the special event, held just blocks away from Levi's Stadium.

Santa Clara residents were able to get two free tickets by logging onto the city's website. This is a much smaller event than the massive Super Bowl City that's built in San Francisco's Embarcadero and Financial District.

Some people said they're excited to have the Super Bowl in their own back yard, but they wish they could afford tickets to actually go to the game next Sunday.

One South Bay resident told ABC7 News he's going to the game and didn't have to pay for a ticket.

"I didn't have to. I'm going to work the game, and see it too," said San Jose resident Ronald Johnson.

"I'm going to walk to the stadium from where I live. And I can't wait. I don't have tickets, but I'm going over there to just enjoy time with me and my family as well," said Santa Clara resident Hang Lee.
