Enjoy an afternoon “chalk” full of fun at the 3rd annual Chalk Art Festival! Over the course of the day, attendees will get to see the evolution of elaborate chalk art designs created by talented street painters. Three professional artists will create large signature murals, while amateur artists will compete for the people’s choice award, as well as first, second and third place prizes by creating colorful, intricate designs on the street.
Other family-friendly activities include:
• Children’s art area – Create your own chalk art masterpiece

• The Zoomeez performance – A musical wellness program for kids
