Tickets still available for Brewers’ La Crosse Area Day

The first-place Milwaukee Brewers will be celebrating the 20th annual La Crosse Area Day at Miller Park on Thursday afternoon, when they host the San Francisco Giants.

Explore La Crosse says as of now, they have 16 buses heading down for the game and still have some seats available.

Ticket packages cost $90 per person, which includes transportation to and from the game, free food at a tailgate party and a ticket to the game.

There will also be raffle prizes, including a signed ball by former La Crosse Logger and current Brewer Eric Thames.

Organizers say the addition of Thames is bringing some added excitement this year.

“It’s a connection with Milwaukee and La Crosse, and I think it’s just a neat thing, we don’t have that happen very often,” said Michelle Hoch of Explore La Crosse. “We have a few people going with their Logger gear on, so hopefully we can get his attention.”

Thursday’s game starts at 1:10 p.m., with buses leaving La Crosse at 7 a.m. If you’re interested in tickets, you can call Explore La Crosse at 608-782-2366.
