Aid Station Prepares for 10th Year

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Oktoberfest-goers will once again have a place to go downtown to find help.

The Third Street Aid Station is returning for its 10th year at the corner of Third and Pearl Streets.

The station offers a place to charge cell phones, ask for directions or seek minor medical attention. It can also serve as a meeting place between groups of people that get separated during the Fest.

La Crosse Police Officer Brooke Pataska says the aid station has been a big success since it started ten years ago.

"We've had hundreds of people every weekend utilize it and and help out," said Officer Pataska. "There are a lot of people that come through here needing the things that we provide."

The aid station will be open from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. Friday night and Saturday night.
