Oktoberfest draws all kinds of people from far and wide to La Crosse. That includes people from one of our sister cities.

La Crosse city officials are hosting a delegation from Epinal, France this weekend to show them what Oktoberfest is all about.

It's part of a celebration of the 30-year relationship between La Crosse and Epinal.

The trip included a visit to Trane Company Friday morning.

The officials from Epinal got into town Thursday and will stay until Monday morning.

Representatives from La Crosse, including the mayor, visited France earlier this year.
