Summer Days starts in downtown La Crosse

A downtown La Crosse tradition has shoppers lining the streets for an annual sale.

Downtown businesses are offering special deals while showing off their stock on the sidewalk, as part of Downtown Mainstreet’s annual ‘Summer Days Sidewalk Sale.

Special events are included Friday as well, with music performances and food at the Cameron Park Farmers Market.

Downtown leaders say the day is a great way to experience area stores.

“It’s just a great opportunity for people to clear out some of their older products and bring in new things, get ready for the new season and for the residents in downtown La Crosse and the community to get some really great buys,” said Robin Moses, Executive Director of Downtown Mainstreet.

‘Summer Days’ events run through Saturday.
