The second annual Chalk This Way! sidewalk art festival will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., March 24, in The Colony. Live music, entertainment, refreshments and vendor booths offering art and art accessories will be available. Admission is free.
Hosted by the Lakeside Arts Foundation (LAF), a nonprofit organization supporting and promoting local fine arts, in partnership with The Colony Chamber of Commerce, the festival features a professional chalk artist exhibit, an amateur chalk art contest, a scholarship contest for high school seniors and a children’s non-competitive gallery.

High School seniors are invited to participate in the LAF Scholarship Competition, with three scholarships awarded to the top-selected entries. The Non-Competitive Children’s area is open to children of all ages. For $3, children will be provided sidewalk-grade chalk and a designated two-by-two-foot area.
