Outdoor adventure films return to La Crosse | Local
ORA Trails and La Crosse Adventure Films team up for a screening of new documentary Biketown; a story of mountain bikers, unlikely partnerships and the communities they create at 7 p.m. Thursday, August 3.
The film will screen at the Pump House, 119 King St. Free tickets are available on the ORA Trails website, as well as the ORA Trails and La Crosse Adventure Films Facebook page. The Pump House will have a cash bar, staffed by volunteers.
ORA Trails and La Crosse Adventure Films are both non-profit organizations, and donations to these organizations allow future opportunities like this to happen.
The film features four different cities that overcame challenges to provide outdoor opportunities to their communities. ORA Trails is especially excited to share this opportunity with the local community, as it highlights projects similar to recent projects ORA has done and continues to do.
