LAPORTE | Art comes in many forms. In downtown La Porte, art is coming in the form of ice sculptures to help launch WinterFest, the City of La Porte Park Department’s days of winter activities. From 3pm to 6pm on January 24th, people can come downtown and see the ice sculptures being made live by the ice artists.

The Ice Sculpture Demonstrations will be taking place throughout downtown La Porte in front of shops on Lincolnway, State Street and Jefferson Avenue.
