Public Invited to Contribute to Parade

(La Porte, IN) - There’s still an opportunity for the public to help offset the costs of the Fourth of July parade in La Porte.


In previous years, advertising in flyers about the parade were sold to help pay the expenses.  Advertising in the brochures is still being offered but companies and individuals are asked to dig a little deeper because there just hasn’t been the time necessary this year to sell as many ads, said Drummond Osborn, Chairman of the Kiwanis Club of La Porte.


The Kiwanis Club of La Porte stepped in to organize and run the parade after the La Porte Jaycees recently decided not to host the parade as it has for decades because of being shorthanded from declining membership.


Osborn said the ads are more expensive but they are larger and come with exposure on the Kiwanis Club of La Porte website and other information sources.  “We’ll also do a number of banners throughout the parade thanking those sponsors,” he said.


Osborn said the advertising packages run from $1,000 to $2,500.
