Jingle Bell Brunch takes place for 10th time

Several holiday gatherings took place throughout our area today, including the Jingle Bell Brunch in downtown La Crosse.

This was the 10th year for the brunch.

It was an event for many families from the Coulee Region to celebrate the holidays together.

The event had a buffet, music, children’s parade, and even a visit from Santa himself.

There was also a military seating for former family military members.

“Some people have spouses who are here and who are not,” local military family member Chelsie Moore said. “And it’s a good way for us to pause time and get together for Christmas and celebrate with our kids.”

Moore said her husband is retired from the Army.

Any money left over goes to the La Crosse City Vision Foundation and Downtown Mainstreet.
