Winter won’t be done for a while yet, but the Moon Tunes gang in La Crosse is busy preparing for summer. 

Terry Bauer is in charge of the Moon Tunes concert series at Riverside Park, and he’s watching the ongoing construction of the new bandshell.    

Bauer said Thursday morning on WIZM that decking will probably start around the second week of February, “and once you get the decking on, we put the copper shingles on, we hope to be done by May 1st.”

Bauer added that building a storage unit and improving the bathrooms in the park are also in the works for this year and 2021.  

A storage area underneath the bandstand stage was filled in as part of the park renovation. 

Bill Miller will be the traditional opening night performer again when the Thursday night Moon Tunes concerts resume on June 4.       

A special indoor Moon Tunes show is scheduled Feb. 29 at Celebrations on the River, featuring TUGG and Slow No Wake.
