La Crosse's Rotary Lights on track for record year

Rotary Lights' skating rink almost ready

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - The Rotary Lights are on their way to another successful year and a special attraction scheduled to open this weekend could bring even more people to Riverside Park.

Organizers say last year was their most successful year to date in terms of donations and attendance and they're already ahead of that pace this year.

The colder temperatures we're seeing also means that the ice skating rink will soon be ready to use, but more preparations still need to be finished.

"What's not going to be ready yet is our warming house. We're still building shelves for the skates, and we're still looking for skates by the way, especially for little kids. So if people would like to donate some skates we'd be very happy to go pick them up," said Rotary Lights President Pat Stephens.

Organizers hope to open the ice rink for skating on Saturday, but need to get the 'okay' from the city parks department first.
