Community gathers in Copeland Park with Lights Over La North La Crosse

LA CROSSE (WKBT) — The North La Crosse Business Association brought the community together Saturday evening for its 12th annual Lights Over North La Crosse.

Those who attended got to enjoy live music, Santa and Mrs. Claus, and hot dogs and smores by the fire.

NLBA’s president says this is a wonderful opportunity for the community to gather. It is also a chance for the north side to shine– just like Rotary Lights on the south side.

“Rotary lights does amazing things for the community, we’d like to give some love to the north side as well. There are a lot of people who are true north side pride, and so we have a great park here in Copeland, and we just hope everyone appreciates the north side as well,” said Kaley Jacobson.

On top of the light display in Copeland Park, La Crosse Skyrockers set off fireworks.

Jacobson says this year’s event was the biggest yet.
