Oktoberfest parties still happening

Oktoberfest may be officially canceled, but that's not stopping some people from partying

LA CROSSE, Wis (WKBT) – Oktoberfest may be officially canceled, but that’s not stopping some people from partying.

There are many area house parties still taking place in La Crosse. At many of these parties, there does not seem to be much social distancing or mask-wearing taking place.

The police department said going into the weekend that it has extra officers on duty to help.

But they are still urging people not to host large parties, especially because of the spread of the coronavirus in the community.
