Presenting sponsor announced for Maple Leaf parade

The Maple Leaf parade will once again have a presenting sponsor in 2018.

This year’s Maple Leaf Parade is sponsored by Morrie’s Audi Volkswagen of La Crosse.

The parade will have more than one-hundred groups on the route from La Crosse’s northside into downtown.

After several years without a presenting sponsor for the parade, Oktoberfest officials are happy to share the cost of the festivities.

“Sometimes the community doesn’t always make that connection that all of those expenses then lie back on Oktoberfest as an organization, and so having a parade sponsor Morrie’s Audi and Volkswagen of La Crosse come in and really does help us out significantly,” said Courtney Daniels, Oktoberfest USA Operations Manager.

News 8 will once again be broadcasting the Maple Leaf parade live.

It’s scheduled to start at 10 Saturday morning.
