The North Webster-Tippecanoe Township Chamber of Commerce hosts the Dixie Day festival to honor the national landmark, the Dixie, sternwheel paddle boat, with a special event. The Dixie Day Festival is always the last Saturday in July.

The Dixie boat has been cruising Webster Lake every summer since 1929 and attracted more than 15,000 riders last season. Extra Dixie cruises will be added for Saturday afternoon of the festival as well as the regular evening
The 1.25 hour cruise of Webster Lake on the Dixie is just $7. Buy your ticket at the Dixie window on the north end of Lake View Pizza King at North Webster Town Park, 403 S. Dixie Drive. There is free parking across the street from the park and around the corner behind Dixie Haven Resort off East Himes Street.
