Tour’s first day in the books

La Crosse tailgate party

Nearly 1,000 festive fans turned out for the first tailgate party at La Crosse’s Oktoberfest Festgrounds.

Fun was had for fans of all ages as the event’s younger attendees enjoyed an archery range, inflatables, face painting and music.

During the event’s question-and-answer session, Mason Crosby got the crowd going with an enthusiastic answer.

Question: “How did the victory in Super Bowl XLV change you?”

Crosby said, “It makes me want to win more!”

The event benefited Children of the Heart, a group of family and friends of people with Down syndrome. More information on the organization can be found online at www.dscoth.org.

According to the organization’s president, Angie Dummer, the event’s impact will go beyond the fiscal support.

“This will help us get our name more recognized in the community,” she said. “We have a walk in October that should be even more successful with this event.”

For Marco Rivera, the party it was an enjoyable end to his first day on the tour.

“It’s been a lot of fun,” he said. “Seeing the expressions on all the faces is great. It’s what Packers football is all about. It’s about the fans.

“The visit to the VA was awesome, too. The Vietnam Vet gave me his beret…what an honor that was. No matter what happens the next five days, that was the icing on the cake.”

Another first-time tour member, Crosby, enjoyed his initial experience as well.

“It was a great day, especially the surprise visit at the high school,” he said. “The VA visit was special, too. Many of them fought for our freedom for so long. It was an honor to meet them.”

Day 2 awaits.

    On behalf of the Barlow family we had a fantastic time as we did when we attended the 2nd year it was held in LaCrosse. What a fun family filled evening.
    Our daughter was in a wheelchair and arrangements were met to meet her needs. She was so excited as she was waiting for her autographs.
    As the players were arriving into the shelter Janie was lucky to get a “high-five” from Charlie and a quick greeting to her. What a special moment for Janie and our family. Janie looks so forward to the tailgate party.
    Thank you Packers and all who had made this such a wonderful time and memories forever.
