Big Weekend in Downtown La Porte

(La Porte, IN) - The weekend promises to be a very happening one in downtown La Porte. Harvest Moon is scheduled for Friday from 6-10 PM on Monroe Street, just north of Lincolnway.


Live music and craft beer, along with other vendors, will be among the attractions. The annual Sunflower Fair is Saturday from 8 AM to 4 PM on Michigan Avenue from Lincolnway to Noble Street.


Kids rides, a classic car show, food vendors, artisans, and rib cook-off will be among the features of the Sunflower Fair, which draws thousands of people annually.


“There are tons of things for you to do,” said Lindsay Jongkind of the La Porte Economic Advancement Partnership, which is hosting the event.

There will also be live music from Chronic Flannel playing music from the ’60s to modern hits on Michigan Avenue following the Sunflower Fair from 6-10:30 PM.


“It’s going to be a packed weekend,” said Mayor Tom Dermody.
