Sidewalk Chalkin' Up a Storm

This past weekend, the town of Lake Worth hosted a street art festival, in which dozens of local artists converged on the main city streets and turned the boring, old paved roads into a canvas to showcase their talents. These artists took photographs and other pictures and drew them out in chalk for the public and other spectators to take in and enjoy. Sadly, some of the pieces were washed out by a rain storm Saturday night, but there were still tons of drawings to enjoy when my friend Phetsada and I went to go check them out on Sunday.

Outside of the drawings, there was other entertainment, tons of food, and other activities for participants to take part in. Watching these people create their works of art was a really awesome sight to see and a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon here in sunny Florida!

Traveling art project from New Orleans that challenges people to consider what they would like to do before they die - very interesting concept and answers

One of my favorite Dr. Seuss books of all time!

The many faces of the actor Johnny Depp (Edward Scissorhands, Captain Jack Sparrow, the Mad Hatter, Willy Wonka)

Even the Beatles made an appearance!


One of my favorites!
