Skyrockers begin nightly salutes atop Grandad Bluff


LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) -- The La Crosse Skyrockers have begun their nightly salutes from the top of Grandad Bluff. 

The salutes, in which a few fireworks are shot off, take place most nights in December. The Skyrockers take off on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. 

The Skyrockers are a non-profit organization tasked with, among other things, putting on La Crosse's annual New Year's Eve fireworks display. 

But the salutes give them a chance to perfect their craft while interacting with members of the community. 

For a suggested fee of $25 per shot, people can sign up to participate in the nightly salutes by firing off a firework. To learn more about how to do so, click here

The Skyrockers have been around since 1929.
