Each festival includes a special chalk section on 4th Street that allows for professional chalk muralists to compete for awards as well as festival goers to experiment with street chalk. Come and watch the pros as they develop their chalk murals over the three days of the festival and vote for your favorite completed piece. Contestants will vie for 3 top awards: "Best Professional", "People's Choice", and Bank of the West's new "Best Representation of If I Were A Giant Theme" award.
Young artists can try their hand at being a chalk muralist by taking the Bank of West Chalk Challenge and interpreting the "If I Were a Giant" theme! Bank of the West will give a FREE commemorative box of 12 quality, colorful soft pastels, and provide prizes to everyone who participates in the mini mural challenge.
