What. A. Day.

The day was hot and the tunes were hotter, and judging by the smiles we saw, the Grand Porch Party 2012 was a crackin’ good time.

A massive thank-you to the wonderful musicians, to our sponsors, to the City, and to everyone who braved the summer-like heat for a big afternoon. There were sing-alongs, impromptu parades, lots of freezies and the best mix of community you can see anywhere.

And that’s what makes the Porch Party special. You.

We’ll be posting pics as we get them in (please feel free to email your best shots to info [at] grandporchparty {dot} com, along with the photographer’s name), but you can read a wonderful account of the day at Darin White’s great blog Makebright.

The Grand Porch Party is an annual neighbourhood music event where we take over the porches, and then the streets, for some fab early-summer music. First launched in 2011.
