Get your chalk ready for the Town's fall chalk art contest! In honor of November Arts Month, Chalk the Walk will take place from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, November 7 at Heritage Park, 600 Spinks Rd. All ages and levels of artists are able to participate and the first 75 to register will receive their own set of chalk.
In order to maintain current social distancing practices, artists will create their original work of art on every other square on the sidewalk. Additionally, there will not be a community box of chalk for participants to use. Instead, the Town will provide prefilled bags of random colors. If you are not one of the first 75 to register, you are encouraged to bring your own chalk. Masks and hand sanitizer will also be available, if needed.
Prizes will be awarded based on different groups: 6 and under, 7-11 years old, 12-17 years old, 18 and over, and family. Additionally, awards will be given for most inspiring, most unique, best 3-D, and best fall-inspired masterpiece. Winners will be notified via email and arrangements will be made to pick up awards.
