Oktoberfest Board Considers Latest from City at Meeting Today

You may have already seen your last Maple Leaf parade in La Crosse.   The Oktoberfest board meets today to consider the future of its parades after city hall refused to negotiate last week on new parade fees.  Losing the giant Maple Leaf parade would hurt, says Oktoberfest executive director Tina Severson.   But maybe more the city than the Oktoberfest organization itself



The city wants 18 thousand dollars in new fees from Oktoberfest to run its parade this year.  Severson expects that amount to balloon to over forty thousand dollars next year.
