LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) -

Residents on La Crosse's Northside got to know each other a little better tonight.

It was part of the Northside's annual block party celebration outside of Trinity Lutheran Church. This year the party was put on by the newly formed Logan-Northside Neighborhood Association

There was food, music, and even a shoe give-away for area children in need.

"I've been told we have over 300 pairs of shoes, brand new shoes, I've seen some of them today, there is some dazzling fun stuff that kids are going to just love," said Sandy Thompson, a volunteer for the block party.

Money for the shoes came from a donation by the Franke Foundation.
