Celebrate Onalaska brings neighbors together

Celebrate Onalaska was at Van Riper Park and the Omni Center on Saturday.

Organizers call the free event an “All-American Celebration”, which features entertainment, food, inflatable rides and more.

John Stiloski, the community involvement specialist for Festival Foods, said it’s important to keep events like this going to bring communities together.

“It’s something that any community should have, and I’m glad that we have it here. We’ve had it for years, and we’ve built on it and we sustain it,” said Stiloski.

Live music started at 7:30 p.m. on the Soccer Fields, and then there was a Festival Foods fireworks show at 9:45 p.m. Music started again after the fireworks show.
