Capturing the moment can be a make or break instant in time that can determine how we remember an event. In 2017, we captured a lot of amazing and intense moments like holiday parades, sporting events, and graduations that summed up a year full of excitement and life-changing events. We are proud to be there to capture these moments and share the top ten most memorable photo galleries from this year in La Porte County!
It’s Christmastime in La Porte County, and nowhere is that more evident than at the La Porte High School Winter Choral Concert. Music and Christmas spirit filled the air as the students filed into the auditorium holding candles and singing traditional hymns and carols dating back centuries. Each of LPHS’s five choirs and choruses were involved in this event, which happens to mark the very last choir concert LPHS will ever hold in its old auditorium. The auditorium is slated to be torn down and replaced in the next two weeks.
Friday, December 1, 2017 from 5:00 to 8:00 PM (CST) The Legendary One-Man-Band, Gerry Hundt, returns to Lubeznik Center for the Arts (LCA).

Between sets, peruse the Holiday Artisan Market, enjoy light bites and a cash bar. Admission is free.
We’ve all heard our friends belt out a ballad of “Hot Blooded” in the bar on a Saturday night while the rest of the bar usually joins in on the chorus. And anytime “Cold as Ice” comes on the radio, you know you just can’t change the station. We recognize so many of these songs because they’ve permeated our culture so deeply over the last 40 years. Foreigner has 22 hit songs on Billboard’s Top 40, 9 of which were Top 10 hits. A claim that only a select few bands can also attest to.
The fall display at the La Porte County Historical Society Museum is again a photo contest, with trophies going to the winning submissions. This year is a “Then & Now” theme. The Historical Society has a vast collection of photos, some going back to the 1800’s. It’s always interesting to see how the landscape has changed over the years, and a “Then & Now” display is always very popular.

When visitors walk through Amhurst Asylum, they see dilapidated padded cells crawling with demented inhabitants, and dangling corpses shrouded in spider webs. Shrieks and cackles echo in the darkness while wild eyes leer through boarded walls. Finally, the smell of gasoline, accompanied by the roar of a chainsaw, greet them as their nightmarish journey comes to an end.
