2005 ANZAC Day Exhibition Game

 

(La Crosse, WI) - Join us in making history with the first Australian Rules Football game ever to be played in La Crosse, Wisconsin!  Help add to La Crosse’s rich athletic tradition by kicking off the 2005 Footy season in the backdrop of beautiful bluffs and the Mississippi River.  Opening bounce for this intra-squad match is scheduled to commence at 12:30pm, pitting a mix of players against each other from the Milwaukee Bombers and Minnesota Freeze. 

 

After the kickoff game, evening entertainment will commence on a cocktail cruise, the La Crosse Queen, from 5:30pm - 7:00pm.  The cruise will entail a scenic trip down the Mississippi with the best views of the river, bridges, downtown La Crosse, and the Minnesota bluffs.  The La Crosse Queen is a modern-day replica of the grand riverboats which roamed the Mississippi in the late 19th century and is one of the few authentic Mississippi river paddlewheelers still in operation in the country today.  Tickets for the cruise will be $20 for adults, $15 for students and children, which includes pizza, soda, and beer.  After the riverboat excursion, the evening will then continue onto the popular downtown La Crosse night scene and its wide variety of beer gardens.

 

The hotel for this event is the Days Inn La Crosse, which is conveniently located at Exit #2 on I-90 and is just minutes from any La Crosse attraction.  The Days Inn is a full service hotel consisting of 148 spacious and comfortable guestrooms, an indoor pool and sauna, along with an outdoor courtyard all contributing to make your stay more enjoyable.  The restaurant at Days Inn (Adams Rib) is affordable and open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  Free high-speed internet access is available at the hotel.
