La Crosse's Riverfest has now been around long enough for kids who grew up going to the festival to become the Commodore. 

Riverfest began 35 years ago, and new Commodore Matt Binsfeld is 40. 

Matt works with the J.F. Brennan Company, also known as Brennan Marine. 

He and his wife Megan will preside over the 2018 Riverfest, which starts on the 4th of July.  

Binsfeld says he was told of his selection in January, when attending a meeting about Riverfest sponsorship with some past Commodores in the room.
