LA CROSSE, Wis. -

La Crosse's 53rd annual Oktoberfest kicks off September 22nd, but planning is already well underway, including the decision on who will lead the parades.

The fest's Parade Marshal Selection Committee is now accepting nominations for both the 2013 Maple Leaf and Torchlight parade marshals.

An adult of any age or gender can be nominated.  Oktoberfest's website says nominees should be people of good character who have contributed positively to the community, living within 20 miles of La Crosse.

If you have someone in mind, you can find more details and nomination forms at Oktoberfest's website.  Forms need to be turned in by 3 p.m. on April 18th.

Parade Marshals will be announced in September.
