2021 Oktoberfest about “average” for emergency calls
Oktoberfest goes fast in La Crosse. It was just on Friday when they tapped the Golden Keg, and Mayor Mitch Reynolds urged festgoers to be safe.
The number of ambulance responses, 192, was up 14 per cent this year, but the number of bike team requests went down, to only 17 compared to 26 two years ago.
About 30 per cent of all weekend responses involved alcohol, mainly people getting drunk or falling.
