MENASHA, Wis. (WFRV) – Doty Island will be kicking out the jams and providing delicious eats, all in the name of summer fun.
It’s all part of the 2nd Annual PorchaPolooza at Smith Park, hosted by the Doty Island Development Council. The free, family-friendly event includes 10 musical acts, two food trucks and a sidewalk chalk artist with musicians performing in resident’s front yards surrounding the park. PorchaPolooza is all about celebrating the residential neighborhoods of Menasha and getting residents engaged in where they live.
“It’s an engagement-type community event,” said Jacy Park, President of Doty Island Development Council. “You see your neighbors, you see your friends and you see people in your community and it’s about talking to people- bringing out pride, pride in your neighborhood. Pride with where you live and where you reside.”
To go along with the music and food, the Menasha Historical Society will also be co-hosting “Artists in the Park” which will feature live art demonstrations designed to give more attention to the visual arts. They will also be giving tours of the Smith Park caboose!
PorchaPolooza 2019 gets underway at 5:30 tonight until about 8:30.
