Storytelling Festival returns to La Crosse Friday

Event features renowned story teller, musicians, other artists

Everyone has a story to tell and this weekend there’s a place to hear them.

The 12th annual La Crosse Storytelling Festival takes place at Myrick Park starting Friday night.

The two-day event features nationally renowned story tellers, musicians, and other performing artists. Organizers say there’s something for kids and adults alike.

“Storytelling has never lost its appeal. If you start ‘Once upon a time,’ you can just feel the audience relax and get ready to listen,” said Storytelling Festival Chair Sara Slayton.

Friday night’s event starts at six. On Saturday things get underway at noon.
