After 90 years, Skyrockers still light up the sky for holidays

Brad Williams



If it’s December, you can see fireworks in La Crosse at 6 p.m. almost every night of the month. 

The Skyrockers are counting down to their two big New Year’s Eve shows on Grandad Bluff, at 6 o’clock and midnight next Tuesday. 

But before that, the fireworks pros shoot off nightly salutes, either from the bluff, or from Pettibone Park, with help from local families.   

The salutes Friday night and Sunday will be from Grandad, and from Pettibone on Saturday and Monday. 

Skyrockers president Pat Bonadurer is optimistic that the mild Christmas weather in La Crosse will carry over to New Year’s Eve.
