What better way to kick off the holiday season than with the beloved Santa Parade?! This well-attended family event is a fan-favorite and completely free for all to participate!

NEW THIS YEAR: The Santa Parade will start at 3 p.m. at the corner of State & Tipton. The route will proceed west down State Street to Michigan Ave; south on Michigan to Lincolnway; then east on Lincolnway to Plaza 618 for the City of La Porte’s inaugural Tree Lighting Ceremony!

Stick around to get your photo with Santa at his chalet. Then, head across the street to La Stitch for food trucks, hot chocolate, Christmas music and more!

Those interested in participating can see more on the City of La Porte Facebook page.
