Highland Square Porch Rokr

Last weekend was the Highland Square Porch Rokr in our neighborhood and it was such a great event! Tons of bands were playing on various streets and porches, all free of charge. There were also vendors selling locally made art, clothing, food, etc.


Abby of Les Bottes D'Eleanor lives in the area too and was smart enough to host an amazing yard sale with some of her other stylish friends! You can see more of that on her blog, here. Stopping over at their yard sale was on my "must do" list for the afternoon, and I was glad I did! They had some great items and Reed basically fell in love with Jessie's dog, Piston. 


I loved hearing several different bands and also taking the time to look at so many of the special, unique homes in Highland Square. The one above is on South Rose and I've always thought it was so beautiful!


The highlight of the evening was seeing Shivering Timbers! They played during the NOTO Fashion Show back in June, you can see more on that here. We stopped at home for a blanket and found a spot across the street on a little hill to watch. I wasn't feeling 100% that day or else I would have been front row, center! I really love their music.


It was such a great event and I'm so happy to be part of this little community.

Just one more reason to love the neighborhood.  :)

I hope you have a great Saturday!

  1. I rode my bike to all of the yard sales that day and scored some pretty cool rings. I rode my bike on purpose...so I wouldn't go home with big items that I don't need or have room for. I love that Highland Square has so much going on during the weekends, gets people out to see their neighbors. You look so pretty in that picture. Love it!
