Will Family Zone Be A Fixture At Fest
The Changing the Culture of Risky Drinking Coalition's Family Zone at this year’s Oktoberfest, sits on the former Mobil Oil site on Coplenad Avenue. But the City of La Crosse would like to eventually develop that land. If they do.....what happens to the zone that saw 450 watch the Maple Leaf Parade last year?
Catherine Kohlkmire says after looking at Oktoberfest in particular, the committee decided to implement an alcohol free zone, or the Family Zone, for the first time on the Maple Leaf Parade route. For now, it will be on the same sight this year....opening at 7am on the 29th.
