Last year we went to the Chalk Art Festival, and we loved it so much we went again this year. If you go later on in the day the crowds are minimal, and most of the art is completed at that point. The only thing that I don't love is it is at the Gateway Mall. Gateway doesn't have a great selection of places to eat for dinner anymore, and lots of shops are just not our cup 'o tea.
We walked through all the cool chalk art, grabbed a giant snow cone to cool off, and let the kids play in the splash pad. When we were done, we drove up the street to our favorite pizza joint Este for dinner.
We were amazed yet again at how talented people are with chalk, and how creative they get. The kids always find a favorite, there were so many good ones this year.
