ITHACA, N.Y. — Despite the kickoff of Ithaca’s newest music festival this weekend, Ithacans were not too worn out to jam out at the 11th annual Porchfest.

Nearly 200 bands officially signed up to perform throughout the Fall Creek neighborhood and other musicians crowded onto yards to draw in listeners and dancers.

The annual event has launched similar Porchfest events throughout the country with more than 55 cities celebrating with music festivites last year.
