Put it on your calendar and be sure to join us for the most free fun you’ll have all winter long! Family Fest 2018 is Sunday February 25th from 11 am to 4 pm. This year we’ll have a special goodie bag courtesy of our Altra Federal Credit Union if you’re one of the first 1500 people through the door! So be sure to get there early for that. But even if you don’t get the goodie bag, we’ll still have Mt. Olympus passes for everyone who attends Family Fest!
The Big E has become a mainstay of Family Fest, and this year will be no different. Once again they’ll be having those ginormous inflatables for the kids in two different areas of the La Crosse Center. I remember one time years ago I was tasked with helping out at the football toss, where kids have to try and throw a football through a small hole in one of the inflatables. Needless to say, the kids weren’t very accurate with their throws, and my duty was to round up all the errant footballs. I was sore for a few days after chasing down balls for a couple of hours that day! But it was a lot of fun. Thankfully, I don’t think I’m on football duty this year. Whew!
Thanks to Gundersen Health System for sponsoring the Main Arena, and Central Animal Hospital for sponsoring the entertainment stage this year. Also thank you to our media sponsor, WKBT News 8. So be sure to bring the kids and the grandkids for a full day of family fun! And the best part of all, it’s FREEE! See you there!
