La Crosse turning Irish for the weekend

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - La Crosse is about to get a little more Irish over the next few days.

The 13th annual Irishfest kicks off Friday at the southside Oktoberfest grounds with opening ceremonies starting at 3 in the afternoon.

After that, it'll be a weekend of Irish music, dance, food, and other celebrations of the culture.

Organizers say it takes hundreds of people to transform the fest grounds into a little piece of Ireland every year.

"You can see how the grounds change a little bit with some of the decorations and other things that we put in and add and we couldn't do it without them, we're very grateful for their time and efforts," said Irishfest President Pat Stephens.

You can find a full list of musical acts and events at the cultural tents online at
