Downtown La Crosse businesses hold sidewalk sale

Annual sale makes room for fall stock

Downtown La Crosse kicks off its annual Summer Days Sidewalk Sale.

The event began Thursday morning with sales at more than 50 downtown shops.

The three day event will also host entertainment, music and food throughout the downtown area, including a street dance Friday night.

Organizers say it’s a good way to get some great deals.

“Come on down and get some great, fantastic savings. We kind of say they’re ridiculous deals because it’s that time of year where people are clearing out some of their old merchandise, getting ready for the fall merchandise to come in,” said Downtown Mainstreet Executive Director Robin Moses.

Participating businesses will have red and black balloons outside their front door.
