(La Porte, IN) - Whether the traditional military flyover for the Fourth of July parade in La Porte will occur this year is not known but there are some encouraging signs.
Dawn Zigler, who is helping the Kiwanis Club put together on the parade, said preliminary approval for a flyover has been granted by the U.S. Air Force. The flyover has also been listed an approved event by the Federal Aviation Administration, she said.
However, Zigler said final approval still have to be made and that decision is usually not known until the days leading up to the parade. “At this point, it’s kind of like a lotto. We haven’t been notified yet if we’ve been selected,” she said. Another positive sign was a flyover of military planes Wednesday to, perhaps, get familiar with the route.
The Fourth of July parade is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m.
