Governor Eric Holcomb recently presented State Rep. Jim Pressel (R-Rolling Prairie) with a proclamation declaring LaPorte as Indiana’s ‘Capital for the Day’ on July 4th. According to Pressel, the LaPorte Jaycees annually sponsor one of the largest July 4th celebrations in the state. Each year, more than 60,000 people venture to LaPorte to watch the 2.5 mile long parade followed by a fireworks display in the evening. “The Fourth of July not only marks a day to show America’s patriotism and love for our country, but a chance to showcase LaPorte and its rich heritage,” Pressel said.
