Kids at the UW-La Crosse Campus Child Center were celebrating Oktoberfest on Thursday, a day ahead of the start of the festival.
They held their annual children's Oktoberfest parade.
The UW-L Screaming Eagles Marching Band provided the music.
The parade wrapped up nearly a week of lessons about La Crosse's largest festival.
Kids made costumes, learned about lederhosen and dirndls, heard a variety of music, and even participated in their own medallion hunt.
