(La Porte, IN) - Dyngus Day in La Porte is next week. It’s the 35th anniversary of the popular Polish celebration in LaPorte, Indiana.
Buses taking people from bar to bar will be returning this year. There were no buses last year because of concerns about spreading COVID-19.
Howie Hunsley, the owner of Dick’s Bar and chairman of the Dyngus Day Committee, said the buses would be rolling from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m.
“With the buses, I think it’s going to really help us this year,” Hunsley said.
Hunsley said turnout for Dyngus Day here isn’t quite like it used to be due to participants no longer being allowed to take their drinks from bar to bar. However, he said the once-a-year occasion still brings out many people. There are 10 bars offering food and beverages on the route for Dyngus Day next Monday.
