South Grand Chalk Walk invites everyone – all ages and all abilities – to come together to make art or watch art being created. Enjoy fresh air, prizes, live music and fun activities for kids. There will be $1,000 in prizes given away! You can participate or just stroll around, see art being created and cast your ballots for the winners in four age categories: 0-6, 7-11, 12-17 and 18+. Visitors can also add to the mural in Ritz Park.
Family friendly activities take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Rain date is Oct. 13.
