La Crosse has welcomed a big paddlewheeler for the first time this summer.
The Queen of the Mississippi arrived on the riverfront early this morning.
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.
All of the boat visits which had been planned for July had to be cancelled, because the river stage was too high at the time.
