Mayor Supports Decision to Delay Parade

(LaPorte, IN) - LaPorte mayor Tom Dermody is standing behind the decision not to have a parade on the fourth of July.  The LaPorte Jaycees has moved the parade it hosts annually to September as part of the Sunflower Fair.   Due to COVID-19, Dermody says it was extremely hard to find people willing right now to participate in the parade and offset the cost of the parade and other July 4 events. The Jaycees said they also felt it was best to push back the parade as a precaution to avoid potentially spreading the virus from such large crowds that typically line the route.
