Lakefest 2023

Thank you to everyone who came out and enjoyed the City of La Porte LakeFest. We could not have done it without the overwhelming community support and our volunteers, committee members and sponsors. Some highlights included:

☀️ Estimated 4,000+ attended the Saturday night concert in Fox Park, with outstanding performances from Everclear, Midwest Hype and James Neary;

☀️ Hundreds, if not thousands, more formed around the lake for fireworks;

☀️ Nearly 2,000 turned out to support the 60+ vendors at The Collective Artisan Market;

☀️ Families packed into Unity Park for the Kids Fun Zone (and, yes, there was foam);

☀️ Between 80-90 cars cruised in for the Car Show in its first year;

☀️ The Cornhole Tournament maxed out with 40, highly-competitive teams;

☀️ On Stone Lake, a record number of teams and participants battled it out in the P1 AquaX LakeFest Grand Prix;

☀️ With rousing Latin music and dancing, the Fiesta del Lago enjoyed its best yet attended year;

☀️ Hundreds more participated in the 5K Run, Sand Volleyball Tournament and Nerf Gun Battle;

☀️ And the food ... oh, so much delicious food!!!

Stone Lake Kayak Lockers - Rentals Available!


We continue to make improvements at Stone Lake Beach! Summer 2022 we took delivery and installed sixteen kayak lockers near the accessible kayak launch. Additional improvements during 2022 included fresh paint for the beach house exterior and interior as well as the adjacent fencing, over 245 tons of new sand, a kayak rental unit, new outdoor shower towers, concrete cornhole boards, and a ping pong table. Thank you to the  La Porte Park Foundation for funding the painting projects and the sand purchase. For more information on renting a kayak locker, please contact the Park office at 219-326-9600.
