Three things to do in & around La Crosse this weekend.

An absolutely BE-A-UTIFUL weekend in front of us! Mid-to-upper 70’s on Friday, low 80’s on Saturday & Sunday!


Planning on hitting the new Ramen spot in Sparta(Matsumoto Ramen House) on Friday night for dinner & an evening ride on the new Harley. Working a bit on Saturday with the Rock Stop in the afternoon at Doggie Zen & Den in Holmen, and hoping to put more miles on the bike on #SundayFunday!

If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, here’s a few suggestions:

Starting today & running through Sunday, it’s the 3rd Annual Deecefest at Bluebird Campground!
