Second annual multi-fest:
Music and Art Over Syracuse will showcase hundreds of local artists and musicians over seven days, Aug. 23 to 29.
"Due to the tremendous success of the first Music and Art Over Syracuse in 2008, we decided to host this event again but make it twice as large," said Josh Walker of LO Entertainment. "The first year we attracted a crowd of over 4,000 people from all across Central New York and beyond. This year we have reserved three music venues and three art galleries."
Walker's partners in LO Entertainment are Brooke Ackerman and Aaron Keller.
