First of the big boats arrives in La Crosse for 2019 season



The Queen of the Mississippi is docked at Riverside Park on Friday, for the first visit of a cruise boat to La Crosse for 2019

La Crosse has welcomed a big paddlewheeler for the first time this summer.

On Saturday, two other big riverboats are scheduled to dock at Riverside Park at the same time.

Eighteen riverboat stops are expected in La Crosse between now and the middle of October.
