The Duneland Chamber of Commerce will host the 7th Annual Fireworks on the Lakefront event on Wednesday, July 1, 2015. The event will take place at the Indiana Dunes State Park & the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. Join the Chamber for live entertainment, food vendors and a spectacular fireworks show.
Food vendors and live music will begin at 6:00pm, and the fireworks show will begin at 9:15pm. The Allen Wronko Band will play both before and after the fireworks, so visitors are encouraged to stay and relax on the beach after the fireworks show.
Bus transportation will be provided from Chesterton Middle School and Yost Elementary School to Porter Beach from 5:00pm to 7:30pm for a $1 donation per person. Guests are asked not to park in grassy areas at either school, and to bring only items that will fit safely on their laps during the bus rides. The last returning bus will leave Porter Beach immediately following show. All buses will stop at both schools.
Entrance to the Indiana Dunes State Park is $7 per car, or $12 per car with an out-of-state license plate. Please be aware that there will be a high amount of traffic at the State Park and Porter Beach. Guests are also asked not to bring any fireworks to this professional fireworks show, in order to avoid fire hazards. Alcohol is not permitted within Indiana Dunes State Park.
The 2015 Fireworks on the Lakefront event would not be possible without the support of the Towns of Porter, Chesterton, Burns Harbor, the Porter County Commissioners, the Duneland School Corporation, Indiana Dunes Tourism, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and County Line Orchard.
