3rd Street Aid Station returns to La Crosse for Oktoberfest

A downtown first aid station will be in place in La Crosse for Oktoberfest once again this year.

The station will be located in the parking lot of the Subway Restaurant on the corner of third and Pearl Streets.

Tri-State Ambulance, along with student Volunteers from Viterbo, UW-La Crosse and Western Technical College will be there to help out.

La Crosse Police want to make sure people are safe over the weekend.

“We would encourage people if they get disconnected their friends, their families or whomever. Maybe need to get their phone charged to stop by here we have a variety of phone chargers and other things that can assist people if they happen to get separated,” said Sgt. Tom Walsh of the La Crosse Police Department.

The station will be open Friday and Saturday from 7 p.m. until 3 a.m.
