ROME, N.Y. – Without the trademark Honor America Days parade this year, the City of Rome teamed up with the Rome Art Association to hold a porch decorating contest to allow people to show their patriotism in a different way.
Red, white and blue adorned the facades of several homes across the city leading up to the Honor America Days celebration over the weekend.
