The City of La Porte’s first ever Friday Night Live at La Stitch event has been postponed, according to Mayor Tom Dermody and Director of Development Tom Casey.

Casey said the event was created to provide more outdoor dining space downtown amid the pandemic. However, after four straight days of Indiana COVID-19 cases topping 1,000, Casey said city officials do not feel it is safe to launch the event at this time.

Dermody said they hope to launch the event on Oct. 16. For more information on the event or updates on the postponement, follow the City of La Porte Facebook page.
