Downtown luau returns with Cheeseburger in Paradise event

La PORTE, IN (Aug. 2, 2023) – The last Friday Night Live event of the summer is a little over one week away, according to City of La Porte Events Director Brett Binversie. 

On Friday, Aug. 11, from 6 to 10 p.m., the city will host its second ever Cheeseburger in Paradise event at the corner of Lincolnway and Monroe. Similar to last year, local vendors will face off and compete for the title of ‘Best Cheeseburger.’ The evening will also feature a beer garden, artisan vendors, local food trucks and a live musical performance by Cabanarama, a Trop Rock band covering everything from Buffett and Marley to Zac Brown Band and Kenny Chesney. Binversie said this event will be the perfect ending to the summer’s lineup of downtown events. 

“Our residents and visitors beat every last one of our expectations for Taco Fest and we anticipate the same excitement and turnout for this event,” Binversie said. “Between the delicious food and the beachy music, it will be the perfect way to say goodbye to a great summer.” 

Binversie said this event is made possible by La Porte Seamless Gutter, as well as La Porte Events members. To learn more about upcoming events or to become a member, visit livinthelakelife.org.
