City Prepared for Lake Fest

(La Porte, IN) - La Porte officials are getting ready for the second annual Lake Fest in the city. The three-day event featuring things live music and food vendors begins on Friday.


Park Department Superintendent Mark Schreiber said his staff members have been busy lately, making the parks look extra nice for people coming to enjoy the festivities.


“We’re working on last-minute details. We want everything to look great for this weekend. We’re excited to put on our best show for residents and visitors alike,” Schreiber said.

Schreiber said planning began about two months after last year’s inaugural Lake Fest was over.


“A lot of time and effort has been put into this. We’re just ready to have a great time this weekend,” Schreiber said.

Other highlights will include jet ski racing on Stone Lake, a foam machine, and kids NERF gun battle. All the events and activities scheduled during Lake Fest can be obtained at laportelakefest.com/events.
