It will include a sit-down dinner, music, dancing, and programming. The August Ball Commemorates August 1, 1887, Emancipation Day celebrating the liberation of enslaved people, first in the Caribbean, and then eventually the end of slavery this country. This ball was celebrated in 1887 by the La Crosse Community. Join us as we bring back a piece of History! Tickets are $35/person.
