Prepare to be dazzled this fall with two tickets to the Viterbo University Fine Arts Center production of 42nd Street on Friday, October 13 at 7:30pm. 42nd Street celebrates Broadway, Times Square and the magic of show biz with wit, humor, and pizzazz.

2 La Crosse Queen Tickets

Enjoy the crisp fall air and golden trees during a Mississippi River Tour on the La Crosse Queen.

She is one of the few “true” paddlewheelers still in operation in the country today. In keeping with early traditions, she was built with stern wheels which are her only means of propulsion.
