Barnyard Bash brings farm life to La Crosse

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) - Local kids got a feel for the farm Sunday in La Crosse.

Students from UW-La Crosse teamed up with the La Crosse Parks and Recreation Department to host the Barnyard Bash at the Black River Beach Neighborhood Center.

Kids got to pet baby goats, learn how to plant flowers, partake in potato sack races, and milk a fake cow.

The event is part of an assignment for students in the university's recreation management class.

Krista Bonikowske , a Senior in that class said, "We wanted to get families involved, do something fun on this dreary Sunday afternoon, and then that way it will help us work on program planning for different age groups making the families happy, and the kids happy."

The baby goats were provided by Rainbow Ridge Farms in Onalaska.
