(La Porte, IN) - The City of La Porte is once again the state capital on the Fourth of July. It’s been declared by Governor Eric Holcomb.
Mayor Tom Dermody read the proclamation from the governor during Monday night’s La Porte City Council meeting. The announcement was met with applause from the audience.
In his proclamation, the governor also recognized the La Porte Kiwanis Club for taking over the parade after the La Porte Jaycees recently decided not to host it after more than 70-years of putting on the parade. The parade is often recognized as the largest in the state.
La Porte has been the state capital on July 4 for decades.
