On Saturday the Oakhurst neighborhood hosted the fourth annual Porchfest.

For seven hours, from noon until 7 p.m., 200 or so musical acts performed on porches around the neighborhood filling the streets with singing, dancing and a close sense of community. Attendees could walk from porch to porch throughout the day to sample soft rock, bluegrass, country, rock and roll, drumming, solo performances and much more.
