Well, friends, we asked for your enthusiastic participation and you did not disappoint. In our first week of registration for the Oakhurst Porchfest we’ve amassed 180 performers and 162 porch hosts. As we mentioned when we launched, our intention is to cap this year’s event at 200 which really just means one thing: If you’re inclined to get on it, now’s the time.
Here’s how it’s shaping up:
Not unexpectedly, Mead Road and Fayetteville Road are once again positioning themselves for domination while Maxwell Street hints at being a serious player. But that’s becoming less unique overall as impressive clusters of activity continue to materialize all around the ‘hood. (Or almost all around, as a few relatively dead zones still remain. Feld, 2nd Avenue, Olympic Place, and Adams Street south of the park, let’s see some hustle out there!)
All in all, an amazing show of support by the Oakhurst Nation. Give yourselves a pat on the back, then share this post with anyone who might still want to jump in. And if you want to register yourself, it’s performers here and porch hosts here.
