MONROE - For the past five decades, Steve Molstad of Nelson Flag and Display in La Crosse has helped contribute to the grandeur of the Cheese Days parade by creating a number of the floats to entertain spectators. Molstad first began creating parade floats when he traveled with his father Merlin, who had been designing the parade staple pieces since the 1960s, maybe even the 50s, Molstad said. "I always like going down to the festival and building parade floats," Molstad said.
