LA CROSSE, Wis (WKBT) – Even though the Oktoberfest Festival was canceled this year. some of the fundraising traditions are keeping strong.

The Oktoberfest USA hosted its annual Oktoberfest Motorrad.

The biker ride is an event to raise 9, $1,000 college scholarships to area students.

The ride was held on lesser-traveled backroads to give riders a unique experience.

“Without Oktoberfest, these organizations aren’t getting any donations. That’s why all these events that we’re doing for all the different festivals are important. Because that’s how we’re helping to keep our community funded, for the people that need donations,” said Eric Loewenhagen, who is on the Oktoberfest Board of Directors.
