The Uptown’s annual Chalk Art Festival is just around the corner, and we couldn’t be more excited! Last year we were priveleged enough to have hundreds of talented artists of all ages in attendance and this year we’re looking to add even more.
But perhaps you’ve never heard of this wonderful event? Well, the Chalk Art Festival is your opportunity to come down and make your mark on the Uptown – literally. Once you register for the event, we provide you with chalk and a sidewalk square, and you just let your imagination do the rest!
In addition there are several contests for different themes and age groups that will be judged on towards the end of the festivities – the winners of which will recieve some pretty splendid prizes. Not only that, but participants who draw in front of Sunken Treasures Games will be part of an exclusive contest with a special mystery prize. So make sure to specify you want to chalk in front of STG!
This all is going down this Saturday June 7th. Registration starts at 9:00am, with judging beginning at noon. If you are out and about before then, we have registration forms here at the store. Prices for entry are Ages 0 – 9 $5.00, Ages 10 – 17 $7.00, and Ages 18 and up $12.00 per person. Chalk is provided when you are assigned your square.
