La Crosse’s Oktoberfest history, including a cooking competition for Mrs. O

View descriptionShare

Brad Quarberg, a bit of a historian when it comes to La Crosse’s Oktoberfest, joined in studio. Quarberg was the 2016 Oktoberfest Parade Marshall and Oktoberfest Board President back in 2001. He also was chief editor and one of the authors of the book, The Fest of Times, a look back on 50 years of Oktoberfest from back in 2010. We talked Tuesday on La Crosse Talk PM about how four golfing buddies started this major event 62 years ago and how things like the Maple Leaf and Torchlight Parades came to be, as well as how becoming Mrs. Oktoberfest has evolved over the years.
