Lacrosse Downtown Mainstreet, Inc is an organization dedicated to promote a vibrant downtown that enriches the businesses, history, culture and captures the spirit of the La Crosse community and region. 

Recently the organization saluted Bud Miyamoto by bestowing on him the Legacy Award at this year’s annual meeting and awards banquet. 

Downtown Mainstreet reached out to Fox 2548 to create a video that would capture some of the people and stories surrounding Mr. Miyamoto’s drive to support the cities “Vision 2000 plan”.   Much of what we all cherish today about downtown La Crosse came from this plan and specifically, the persistence of Bud Miyamoto. 

Fox 2548 Creative Services Director Paul Bjorge and Creative Producer Tyler Ike crafted this tribute, with the help of La Crosse Downtown Mainstreet and the many contributors to this production.
