Some participants in the LaPorte Jaycees Fourth of July Parade are perennials — such as the Orak sword guy. But the Jaycees are always looking for a variety of groups, new floats and unique vehicles to join in. 

The 72nd annual parade will take place Wednesday, July 4, beginning at 10 a.m. Any interested community members and organizations are welcome to apply to participate as a unit in the parade.

Parade units are encouraged to decorate to the theme “Let Freedom Ring” and construct more traditional parade floats for spectators to enjoy. An application fee of $35 is due at the time of submission.

The parade will follow the traditional route, traveling down Lincolnway from Tipton Street to Andrew Avenue.

Visit http://laportejaycees.org/4th/paradeentries/ to find more information, as well as both online and print entry forms. With questions, please email lpjaycees4th@yahoo.com or call Brad Rauschenbach at 219.363.4864.
