Go Modesto – Porchfest in coming May 21

This is Modesto’s largest party of the year! Nearly 50 porches across the College and La Loma and the Bodem/Morris Area neighborhoods will be making a huge party. Grab your bicycle and go from house to house, porch to porch and hear most of Modesto’s favorite musicians. This is a fun day to hang out with friends and find new bands. Remember, the homeowners and the bands are donating their porches and their performance so PLEASE tip these folks during the day from noon- 5 pm. Bring water and lawn chairs and enjoy the day. Final maps and band listings will be posted later this month at www.modestoporchfest.com
