Lake Fest Headliner Revealed

(La Porte, IN) - Things are shaping up for the 2nd annual Lake Fest in La Porte.


Lake Fest isn’t until summer. However, the headline performer was announced today on The Morning Mayhem show hosted by Dennis Siddall and Jo Happel on 96.7 The Eagle.


Clayton Anderson is an up-and-coming country music star putting on a free concert at Stone Lake Beach as part of the Lake Fest festivities. Anderson is from southern Indiana.


Parks Superintendent Mark Schreiber announced he’ll perform in the evening on July 29.


“He’s getting quite a bit of play on CMT with his videos. He has a number of albums out. He’s currently out doing some touring. We’re just so thrilled to have him.  He’s one of those rising artists that you’re going to get the opportunity to see him for free at Lake Fest. That might be your last chance to see this guy for free,” Schreiber said.

Schreiber, who also appeared with Mayor Tom Dermody, said people are also welcome to enjoy the concert from their boats.
