During the afternoon hours, visitors and residents, all music lovers, will be able to stroll casually from venue to venue following well-prepared maps which conveniently provide the time(s) each entertainer is performing, the type of music in which each specializes, and the location and owner of each porch hosting the music. Numerous styles will be offered by over thirty musical acts, among them pop, rock, country, gospel, and polkas.
