The Portside Arts Center and The Green Rock Tavern had a great turn out with their 3rd Annual Lehigh Avenue Festival this weekend. Lots of people from the community came out and had a blast painting pumpkins and creating sand art. Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, Muralist Cesar Virveros had the community help him paint two actual panels that will be a part of the Portside Art Centers mural. All the kids had a great time bouncing away in the moon bounce and getting there face painted. Many people rocked out to the music all day at the Green Rock Tavern and The Portsiders drew a huge crowd when they preformed later that evening. The Portside Arts Center thanks all of the community and sponsors for their support in helping raise money for the children’s scholarship fund. We hope to keep the Lehigh avenue Arts festival going for years to come and hope the community is too! Special thanks to; Philadelphia Beer Co., Staples, Fresh Works, Cassizzi Ristorante, Apple Bee’s, Key Pizza, Port Richmond Pharmacy, Coralluzzo Construction Corp, OCD Contracting, 73 General Contracting, and Arts and Crafts Man.
