The Rotary Lights experience in downtown La Crosse will be changed a little this year from the usual festival.
Some of the changes have resulted from the pandemic, but the path in and out of Riverside Park has been affected this year by construction at the La Crosse Center.
The president of Rotary Lights, Pat Stephens, says Front Street to the south of State Street won’t be available to drivers.
Instead, drivers will enter the park from Vine Street and Front Street from the north, and exit onto State Street.
Santa isn’t going to have kids sit on his lap this year, during the pandemic, but he’ll spend lots of nights before Christmas in the park inside his workshop, speaking with kids and parents through the window.
