La Crosse Skyrockers host 5th annual ‘Stuff The Mortars’ event

The countdown to New Years has begun, which means we are only a few short weeks away from the area’s biggest fireworks display put on by the La Crosse Skyrockers.

On Saturday, people got the chance to learn more about the fireworks at the 5th annual “Stuff the Mortars” fundraiser.

The Skyrockers said it gives people an in-depth look at the craft while in a safe environment.

“Being that we are a nonprofit organization and our purpose in life is to help educate the community about this kind of thing, it’s just something you never see a business go out and do and show how we do fireworks safely for the community,” said Jonathan Vermes, PR director for La Crosse Skyrockers.

This will be the La Crosse Skyrockers 86th year shooting fireworks off the bluffs. It is funded through donations every year.
