‘Chalk with tots and other school-aged kids’ will provide fun games for kids from 2:00-4:00. Children of all ages are encouraged to join us for chalk art and activities in the park, including relays, dance, and other fun games.

From 4:00-7:00, enjoy delicious food for sale from local vendors, including Gigi’s Iced Lollies, The Hot Dog Peddler, and WildMoon Salsa. If you are feeling adventurous, join us in our first ever cupcake walk, with all proceeds going towards future ChalkFests.
