LA CROSSE, WI -

The 18th annual Historic Downtown La Crosse Day is Saturday, October 12.

Interim Executive Director of Downtown Mainstreet Robin Moses says the event is about exploring La Crosse and participating in family-friendly activities.

“Historic Day is not so much about sales and shopping, as it is about really exploring downtown, seeing our great restaurants and learning a little bit more about the history of our community,” Moses said.

Some of the events include pumpkin painting in Cameron Park, horse-drawn carriage and trolley rides, face painting, caricatures, chalk art, a 1860 show shine stand and walking tours.  

“Historic Day is really something we want to give back to the community,” Moses said.

Events will happen rain or shine.
