Riverfest may be done.
but the weekend isn't over yet...and a lot of people
are still planning to continue their holiday celebrations
out on the water tomorrow.
Because the weekend has proven to be so dangerous
in the past...
The La Crosse Police Department.
along with many other local agencies have been out
on the water all day and will continue to do so.
to keep people safe.
As long as you follow the law.
you shouldn't have any safety problems this weekend.
So, what we're looking for out here basically is just
any violations of state laws.
We're looking for kids who aren't wearing life jackets.
Any kid 13 years old or younger has to be wearing
a life jacket.
One officer stresses that having a designated driver
on your boat is incredibly important for safety reasons.
