SWAMPSCOTT, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) – After taking a break in 2020 because of the pandemic, ReachArts held its annual Swampscott PorchFest on Saturday.

Musicians from across the town serenaded music lovers from various front porches including the group known as One Dime Band.

Member Paul Gallucci said it was nice to play in-person after the festival was held virtually last year.

“We were just happy to see that everybody was back out and outside with no masks,” he said. “It’s just a beautiful, great day for people to walk around and do their thing.”

The band performed during the first PorchFest in 2019. The event is a way for neighbors to get reacquainted on an afternoon to create community through music.

“It’s a great community day for Swampscott,” Gallucci said. He also credited ReachArts for helping to support the artistic community.

“It’s stellar for that,” he said. “ReachArts has been just amazing since they started.”
