Best of La Crosse County 2014 / Arts & Entertainment

The Arts & Entertainment categories cover all La Crosse County has to offer in art, music, and sports. In music, local reggae-rock group TUGG proved to be a big favorite, placing in the top three in five out of six categories, including the top spots as Best Acoustic/Bluegrass and Best Indie/Alternative performers. The La Crosse Loggers baseball club is not-too-surprising runaway winner in the Best Sports Team category, while the Weber Center for the Performing Arts eked out a close win over the Viterbo Performing Arts Center and La Crosse Center for Best Performing Arts Venue.
