You already know about all the fun kids have at Family Fest… from the Big Event Company inflatables all around the La Crosse Center, to checking out one of the La Crosse Fire Department’s firetrucks up close and personal, to having a Logger Dog for lunch with Dippin’ Dots for dessert, to the fun activities of the Boys and Girls Club, to checking out the latest bikes at Bikes Limited and maybe a quick test ride, to all the amazing musical instruments at the Leitholds Music Booth, to bunches of fun stuff at the Children’s Museum booth. Plus many booths have games for the kids and a few booths even hand out candy. And there’s local entertainment on the Central Animal Hospital stage.
Okay, well and good for the kids… but hey, how about us adults? First, let’s talk food… how about lunch from Burracho’s Mexican Grill, Famous Dave’s or Buffalo Wild Wings, how do you choose? After that, a relaxing massage from one of the many great chiropractors (one year I was greedy and had two massages). You can check out the latest phones at U.S. Cellular or Verizon, or get a great deal on a Sam’s Club membership, or get some awesome remodeling ideas at the Your Home Improvement booth. There are booths for you to check out your financial picture, booths for medical and dental services in the area, camping at a great site in our area, schools, day-cares, and you can even get signed up for Karate lessons. And before you head out with the family swing by the Onalaska Dairy Queen for a Dilly for a dollar and your dollar goes to the Children’ Miracle Network Hospitals.
Family Fest 2018 is coming up on Sunday, February 25th from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM. It’s truly an event for the whole family, and I’ve listed a bunch of my favorite booths… what will be your favorite?
