The Fairport Music Festival is one of those summer events that just keeps getting bigger, and it starts rocking the village Friday night.

Nearly two dozen acts will take stages on Liftbridge Lane along the Erie Canal this weekend. But that doesn't take into account all the other music playing along Fairport's bustling Main Street.

It's the last big event there before the lift bridge closes.

The festival, which started in 2005, benefits Golisano Children's Hospital.

"It started back, Andy McDermott and Rob Burch had an idea. They were going to raise some money for the children's hospital at Strong, and the first year we had two stages and one day $13,000 [was] donated," organizer Bill Houston recalled. "Last year with the expansion of this event, we donated over $230,000 to the hospital last year."
