Crews set up for Freedom Fest at UW-La Crosse

Rainy weather Thursday didn’t get in the way of preparations for the 8th annual Freedom Fest in La Crosse.

They actually started setting up for the event Wednesday.

In all, more than 300 volunteers will help out.

The evening will be capped off with a fireworks show.
