One end of Second St., reopens but traffic, parking could be tricky for Moon Tunes. Groups are, however, making it easy to bike

The third Moon Tunes of the season takes place tonight at Riverside Park in downtown La Crosse.

Traffic could be tricky, however.

Second Street did reopen on the north side, but Third Street is still down to one lane and various streets heading to Riverside Park also closed. So, getting to the concert may take longer than usual. Parking might also be a headache.

Moon Tunes organizers have asked, if you do drive, try and use the parking ramps, which will be free — you just need to check in at the kiosk or with the city’s parking app.

You don’t have to drive, though. Thanks to a couple different organizations, they’re making it easy for you to bike to Riverside Park.

The Beer By Bike Brigade, Smith’s Bike Shop and Blue Steel Bike will check your bike, while you enjoy the concert.

There will also be plenty to eat and drink at the concert thanks to the Piggy’s tent, the Pearl Street Brewery tent and at the Rotary Interact tent for soda, water and popcorn.

Kids can enjoy free Rotary train rides, as well, from Engineer John.

Those kids — who are we kidding? — kids and adults can also enjoy homemade ice cream from the Pearl, as well.

Tonight’s concert will feature The Jazz Orchestra, followed by “TUGG.” It begins at 5:30 p.m.

Moon Tunes also announced a $10,000 donation Wednesday from McLoone P.I. toward the bandshell project at Riverside Park.
