2018 La Crosse Oktoberfest button unveiled

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Oktoberfest may be more than six months away, but it's never too early to get in the festing spirit.

The 2018 Oktoberfest button design was unveiled Thursday at the 5th annual 'Forks and Corks' fundraiser.

This year's design follows the theme of 'Polka, Pretzels and Prost' and was created by Kyle Bruenig who submitted a button design for the first time this year.

He says the shape of the button actually reminded him of a beer belly so he designed the button to look like someone wearing lederhosen.

"I always think about lederhosen and dirndls and all that good stuff and it really brings a lot of joy to the whole community of La Crosse, so I wanted to keep it fun and light," said Bruenig.

Mark your calendars, the 58th annual Oktoberfest begins on September 27th.
