UW-La Crosse Campus Child Center caps off week with mini Oktoberfest parade

Kids at the UW-La Crosse Campus Child Center were celebrating Oktoberfest on Thursday, a day ahead of the start of the festival.

They held their annual children's Oktoberfest parade.

The UW-L Screaming Eagles Marching Band provided the music.

The parade wrapped up nearly a week of lessons about La Crosse's largest festival.

Kids made costumes, learned about lederhosen and dirndls, heard a variety of music, and even participated in their own medallion hunt.
