Taco Fest Pushed Back by Dreary Forecast

(La Porte, IN) - The City of La Porte's Taco Fest has been postponed due to Friday's grim forecast.


"With chilly temperatures and a 100 percent chance of rain in the forecast, we feel it is best to reschedule Friday night's festivities," said Events & Civic Auditorium Director for the city Brett Binversie. "We want Taco Fest to be a fun, positive experience for visitors and vendors alike, and it just doesn't seem that the weather would permit that." 


The event on Monroe Street just north of Lincolnway is rescheduled for Friday, July 8.


The festival, made possible by Arnett Construction & Roofing, will feature local food and beer vendors, a pop-up artisan market and live music. Food vendors will also compete for the title of "Best Taco."

The inaugural Taco Fest in October was threatened by cool temperatures and rain but the rain stopped just prior to the start of the event, which drew a huge crowd.
