Hundreds attend Kind's Annual Corn Roast


WEST SALEM, WI (WXOW)—Hundreds of people gathered at the La Crosse County Fairgrounds in West Salem Thursday night for Rep. Ron Kind's Annual Corn Roast.

There was something from everyone from games outside for kids, to polka music inside and of course beer, brats and corn.

Voters had the opportunity to visit with democratic leaders including Ron Kind, Herb Kohl and Tammy Baldwin.

Kind said tonight was about letting people know we can still turn the economy around and Wisconsin is still the land of opportunity.

"We can grow the economy, create good paying jobs and make sure everyone is a full participant of this economy reaching their full potential," Kind said. "So tonight is really a tribute to the people of Western Wisconsin and the hard working families that make our communities what they are."

He said one of the reasons he loves the corn roast is because he gets a chance to visit with old and new friends.
