Sarasota Chalk Festival
Wow. Yesterday turned out much better than the weather people said it would. Very nice weather for the artists who are doing the chalk drawings as part of the annual chalk festival. Better than the rainy and overcast Saturday. Several streets are blocked off for this. The artists includes people who travel to many of these (and make a living at it I would guess) and some local students as well. There are food vendors, people selling t-shirts, and so forth. This year’s theme was to honor veterans so the drawings all had some sort of patriotic image. The festival continues for another day, and because of the wet weather the artists were still working on their drawings when I went Sunday morning.
