La Crosse, Wisconsin (WXOW) ------ With just a few weeks to go until the 52nd Annual Oktoberfest, tonight we learned the identities of the Maple Leaf and Torchlight Parade Marshals.
At the south side fest grounds approximately 5:30 this evening, community members gathered to see who would receive the honor of Parade Marshal.
Jane Molstad was chosen as the Marshal for the Torchlight parade and Ed Dibbick will lead the Maple Leaf Parade as its Marshal.
The 2012 Oktoberfest runs September 28th through October 6. The Maple Leaf Parade is Saturday, September 29th at 10:00 am. The Torchlight Parade is Thursday October 4th at 7:00 PM.
Parades are free but a button is required for admission to the Oktoberfest grounds. Buttons are 5 dollars in advance, 8 dollars at the gate.
This year's theme is "It's all about the fest."
