Here’s an event that has a couple things I really like; chalk drawings and new sidewalks.

Hillyard will host it’s 13th annual Chalk Art Walk this Saturday. This is the last time the current sidewalks will be used as canvases for chalk artists because the 2009 streetscape project (to renew the historic Market Street district) will replace the old damaged sidewalks with new ones. Work on that project is scheduled to begin within the next few weeks.

In the meantime, the sidewalks will be used for this free competition. Starting at 10:00 A.M. Saturday, contestants get their own sidewalk square and chalk. They have until mid-afternoon to complete their picture before judging. For more information, or to enter the contest, here’s a link.
