LaPorte Parade Information
In La Porte, traffic will be diverted off of Lincolnway beginning at 8:30 AM on the Fourth of July. No traffic other than the parade units will be allowed on Lincolnway between Philadelphia Street and Andrew Avenue on the day of the parade between 8:30 AM and the end of the parade. There will be no parking on sections of several streets. The Police Department stated folks attending the parade are asked to be considerate of everyone around them during the parade. Since the parade is first and foremost a family event; officers have been given orders to arrest any intoxicated, unruly or belligerent spectators immediately. Fireworks violations that occur along the parade route are also going to be addressed aggressively due to the public safety issues involved. Citizens are reminded that due to the crowds, noise and confusion, the parade is definitely not a good place to bring pets. Parents are also strongly encouraged to closely supervise their children and perhaps even attach a note to the clothing of younger children indicating where the parents are along the parade route; just in case a child wanders off.
