Downtown sidewalk blowout sales returning to La Crosse

Name change from Krazy Days to Summer Days

An annual sidewalk sale in downtown La Crosse got the go ahead Monday morning.

The Board of Public Works once again agreed to the giant retail blowout in July.

For many years, it has been called “Krazy Days,” but this year it will be called “Summer Days.” Organizers say a new name doesn’t change the event. There will be live music featuring the La Crosse Jazz Orchestra, dancing, and, of course, huge sales and amazing prices.

Summer Days will begin Friday, July 23, and last the entire weekend.

“Most of the retail stores bring items out to the sidewalk, but then other restaurants have deals, there might be some other fun activities going on,” said Downtown Mainstreet Incorporated Executive Director Robin Moses.

About 40 different businesses will be participating this year.
