ITHACA, N.Y. — The streets were jammed and full of people, bands and bikers during Ithaca’s 10th annual Porchfest Sunday.
Musicians, playing from people’s homes or lined near sidewalks, blasted tunes for dozens of people gathered at each site. Nearly 200 bands were booked for performance all throughout the Fallcreek and Northside neighborhoods.
Among this year’s highlights was a community street mural that recruited passersby to help fill in portions of the design.
The Porchfest website stated, “To celebrate Ithaca’s 10th annual Porchfest this Sunday, we’re painting the intersection of Auburn, Lewis and Adams streets with a lovely Porchfest mural. It was designed by the wonderful Nina Widger, whose paintings were the official Porchfest artwork for our first seven years.”
Here are some photos from the event by 14-year-old Ithaca Voice intern Sam Scott.
