TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL)- Quincy's 3rd Annual Porch Fest is taking place this Saturday and it's an event not only filled with family-friendly fun, but also historic scenery.

The event is modeled after the national Porch Fests that take place throughout the United States and Canada. The purpose of the event is to bring the community together. Quincy is the first town in Florida to hold a porch fest.

Joining Jade Bulecza on WTXL's Midday was Porch Fest Organizer Walter Kelleher and Mainstreet Quincy Representative Joe Monroe. Monroe explained the significance of having a porch fest in Quincy.

"They'll get to tour a beautiful section of Florida," said Monroe. "We're almost 200 hundred years old. You'll be walking by churches with Tiffany windows, a courthouse which is designed by a renowned architectural firm and all these really neat houses."

There will be live music from the Rolling Tones, Ronnie Randolph, Leroy and Bilbo, Jim Crozier, Quanta, The Common Taters & Turnups, and many more.

Porch Fest is this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Quincy's Historic District. It's free and open to the public.
