Street Painting Festival

The chalk art at the Festival is a favorite for all ages - everyone loves to see the black top come to life with vibrant color. Artists can choose to create artworks that reflect the theme of the 1980s or do a rendition of a masterpiece.


This year's featured artist is Gus Moran.
