It’s kind of depressing to think too much about how modern homes are built, with big, private decks in the back rather than open, wrap-around porches in the front. But because of its age, Spokane’s historic West Central neighborhood is fortunately filled with creaky big porches that invite neighbors right to the front door. To celebrate that sense of community, 10 West Central homeowners are inviting the whole ’hood to come over and enjoy live music and poetry readings by more than 20 local performers. Get on out there and make Mr. Rogers proud.
First Annual PorchFest • Sat, Sept. 13, from 3-7 pm • Free • All-ages • West Central neighborhood, Spokane • marshallinspokane.com/PorchFest
