Art On The Porches is awesome.

If you don’t believe me, just ask the neighborhood kids who start chattering about it weeks ahead of time, who burst with excitement on AOTP Eve and cast a thousand curious glances out the window in the morning as their ordinary old street is transformed into a carnival. Or ask the neighbors you’ll see out at dusk every night for weeks, beautifying the street, planting and painting and in so many ways making Ruskin Avenue part of the art show that visitors from all over the Syracuse area have come to enjoy on an (almost) always sunny Saturday in June. Or ask the eclectic group of artists who never fail to impress, or the great local musicians who serenade the entire block with a variety of sounds.

If you have never come to Art On The Porches, you should definitely come to Art On The Porches.
