LA CROSSE, Wisc. (WKBT) - Riverside park was filled with families and friends for the kick-off night of Moon Tunes on Thursday.
Moon Tunes of La Crosse is a Valley Rotary Project bringing free concerts to Riverside park every Thursday during the summer. Thursday's performance was Bill Miller and Friends.
Valley Rotary Member, Terry Bauer, says "People just don't take time out to sit down and relax and get off their tv, get off their phones, and come out and enjoy the park. So, it's really kind of embraced everybody to get down to the park and enjoy a free concert... it's summer in Wisconsin!"
